The school gates are due to open in a matter of days. I have helpfully reminded all those concerned about this fact in an effort to ease them into the next mind-set.
Monday night our quieter boy came back down the stairs to tell me he thought he was going to be sick. I managed to convince him otherwise and tucked him back in.
Last night he appeared again. “I have the hic-cups so when I lie down I think I’m going to be sick.”
He is not going to be sick. I know exactly what is bothering him.
School is bothering him. The thoughts of it are bothering him. I went upstairs with him and sat on his bed. We had a chat. Or at least I tried to chat to him. He turned away from me to face the wall. I chatted anyway.
We did a little relaxation exercise taken from a book I can highly recommend called A Kid’s Guide to Overcoming Anxiety” by Dawn Huebner, PH.D.
You might also find it helpful for your child if they are worrying about the return to school. Or about any other anxious occasion in their life.
Picture your mind like a television and the worry thoughts are a programme you don’t want to watch. Think about changing that channel on the television. You can do this by “re-setting your system” and this means doing something to change the way your body feels.
Try this relaxation exercise.
Squeeze your hands into tight fists.
Scrunch up your face.
Tense your body.
Hold this “body scrunch” for 5 seconds.
Then let everything go so you are nice and floppy.
Now it’s time to breathe deeply.
Imagine the breath you are taking in as being cool and calming. Think of it going all the way down into your tummy.
Now breathe out. Think about this breath out as beign hot and bothered air.
In – cool and calm.
Out – hot and bothered.
Do this 5 times.
This next bit is my favourite.
Pick a happy memory. It can be anything at all. As long as it gives you happy thoughts when you think about it. It can be a tastier than usual hot chocolate. A day at the zoo. Going into the shop and finding your favourite magazine.
Now, think about what you see. What are you wearing? Can you hear anything? How do you feel?
When I did this exercise with the boy it was intended for, two more joined in and had a great time.
Ten minutes later the hic-cups were gone and all thoughts of feeling sick had stopped. He wasn’t facing the wall anymore and he wrote down a couple of good things that had happened that day as well.
Then he fell asleep.
I think a little distraction exercise like this can work for everyone.
Aw poo little fella but that's a really lovely exerciseReplyDelete
Thanks Yaz! He'll be ok. I hope! Currently it's the thoughts of it that are killing him. Once he gets in there he'll be fine. Again, I hope!Delete

I have an anxious little one here. I must get a copy of that book. That sounds like a lovely exercise. I'm sure I'll need to try it on the eve of 'big school'!ReplyDelete
Sadhbh it's a great book. Explains everything really well and offers lovely little ways to overcome anxiety. If we can get our kids to learn these tools during their childhood, they can use them when they're older.Delete
I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid,,Non Hodgkin Lymphoma,Skin Cancer,Uterine Cancer,Prostate Cancer Dercum,Infertility,fibromyalgia,Get Your Ex Back,Als,SYPHILLIS,Genetic disease,Epilepsy, Parkinson's disease..You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Herbal Doctor via this e-mail: email@example.com or call and whatsapp him on +2348149277967 He will help you and his herb medication is sure. he has the cure on all disease .You can talk to me on INSTAGRAM..tashamoore219....ReplyDelete
Unfortunately there are a lot of AIDS/Herpes denials on Herbal cures still out there. I did research on them after I was tested HIV/Herpes positive I was so worried am I going to die soon. I continue my search again on herbal remedy for Std, then I found lots of testimony on how Dr Itua Herbal Medicine Cured HIV/Aids, Herpes Virus,Copd, Hepatitis,Shingles, Diabetes,Epilepsy,Infertility, On websites sharing their testimonies, which made much more sense to me. All the authors pronounce Dr Itua As a man with Good Heart, I pick interest in their testimonies and I contact him about my situation then he gave me procedure how it works, I proceed after one week he courier his Herbal Medicine to me and instruct me on how to drink it for two weeks to cure. I receive His Herbal Medicine so I drank it for two weeks as I was told then after 2 days I go for a test I found out I was cured from HIV/Aids & Herpes Virus, I pay homage to him 2 months ago to his country to celebrate with him on his African festival which he told me it usually happens every year. I know there are lots of (HIV)/Aids&Herpes Virus denials of Herbal Remedy movement the same few doctors and they represent a very small faction of the community. I could have died because I refused Natural Herbs Cures for so long, but luckily, by the grace of God I am alive to tell my story.

Do you still Struggle with Cold Sores, unexpected Outbreak and Herpes Virus? then you don't have to keep waiting for treatment when the is a herbal medicine that cure this virus. I was searching online for Herbal Cure for Herpes Virus when I saw a testimony online about Dr. Akintunde and how he cured a lady of HSV1 with his.ReplyDelete
natural herbal medicine and tested Negative and in less than a month she was cured of this virus. So it took me time to believe that this was true, because my family Doctor tried all his best to get rid of this virus in my body system but yet no cure and I suffered from outbreak and Cold Sores always. I had to contact Dr. Akintunde after I have access his website and i had faith in God that I was going to be fine and free of this virus one day. Finally I contacted Dr. Akintunde on his WhatsApp number that I saw on the testimony post online, and after our conversation the Doctor only promise me that I was going to be cured and free of this virus after taking his natural herbal medicine because I was tired of my situation with this virus it was so distracting to my life and whole family. Later Dr. Akintunde send some Herbal medicine to me through UPS courier service, with instructions on how to used this medicine, to my biggest surprise first week of taking my herbal medication I saw great improvement and I still think that it's a dream but this is real, I now test Negative of this virus today and my blood pressure well regulated now, my family doctor after my test was extremely surprise to see my test result change to HSV2 Negative and no more symptoms, cold sores, sores throat and outbreak again. I wish to tell everyone about this, mostly if you have this virus then do yourself good to contact Dr. Akintunde and see what the Lord can do through this Herbal Doctor's medicine in less than a month. 100% free from herpes Virus. I and my family say "thank you" Sir, for helping my life. You are a blessing to this generation and God will reward you richly
