I mentioned going to the beach when the weather is sunny in the summer trying to give him something to look forward to. His response: what if you forget sunscreen, what if we forget towels, what if I forget my toys at the beach, what if there are bullies at the beach, what if I forget my sunglasses....this went on and on until finally I had to forcefully change the subject.
He used to appear a little anxious when he first started taking ritalin but it stopped and he was happy again. Now EVERYTHING is a big deal and has to be gone over 5 times before it's acceptable for him. This behaviour has now carried over long after his meds have worn off.
Does anyone else have this problem with their child. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
