I am just glad it is not a problem for ds Zachary anymore. You see when he was in 5th grade last yr they showed a film of middle school for them to let them see what it would be like. Well the one thing my ds noticed was on the film this kid could not get his locker open because he forgot how to work the lock and was extremely embarrassed about it so Zachary has been worried this might happen to him. SO yesterday when we got back from the park I got him a combination lock to practice on and although he messed up once or twice he has no trouble unlocking it now. So he is not as worried about that now but he is dreading getting his tetanus booster he hates needles. I told him it is only one shot and when he was 18 months old he got DTP,and MMR at the same time and he didn`t even cry . My question is are any of your ds or dd worrying about something this summer? I have not made a big deal about this stuff on purpose because Zachary is the kind of kid that if you do he gets anxiety from it. I am just wanting him to have a fun break and not worry about this stuff any suggestions as to how to get him to relax would be helpful. You also should know it has been raining like every other day here so instead of getting to go outside and play he has been stuck inside quite a bit and I think it is getting to him. TIA for your comments.
