adjusting to middle school
My 6th grader is have anxiety issues at middle school. The first 4 weeks were great. The past two weeks have been awful. She is an A student and has maintained her grades, however, she cries at school, calls home, has stomach ache, hurting in chest, etc. The dr. says it is anxiety for some reason. She swears no one is bothering her. She likes school but has a hard time focusing. The only thing that happened between week 4 and 5 is that we had a sudden death in the family. She is concerned that she has inherited heart disease. I have taken her to the dr and she is perfectly healthy. Has anyone gone through this with their child during middle school? I need help!!
