|Miss with dog|
But after one particular blow-up about a muffin one morning, I phoned the school psychologist, and she has been seeing Miss at school.
We had our first feedback last night. She did the Rochard Psychology Test. What is underneath is much worse than we though. Obviously I am not going to share much about the details, as this is not my story.
But I am so sad that we have an anxious, highly stressed little girl who is constantly seeking for approval and recognition.
I don't know how much is genetics, and how much personality. (?) Maybe both.
My point here is that I am glad that we did ask for help. I actually told Miss a while ago that we can ask somebody to help her with coping skills. She was very eager and she is enjoying the sessions. Because they are doing art while they are talking. (Much up her alley!)
I hope we can help her to not see life as a struggle and to not be so frustrated all the time.
Because when you look at her, you won't know. There is nothing at home that should stress her. (We worry about the finances.) She is doing well at school, doing lots of activities and she has friends that care about her. My husband says maybe it is because she can't have all the things her friends have. I said I know for a fact that that is not the reason! She gets all the love and attention, and we will increase it for now!
So... She is doing therapy for Life Management Skills!
