Thanks so much for the feedback! We were in counseling weekly for about six months, but his counselor isn’t really trained in working with kids and he wasn’t getting a lot out of it. We’re taking a little break now while we are on the waiting list for another program called Empowered Through Play – I’m really excited about how they do things and hope it will make a big difference for him.

I’m definitely going to try the cot or sleeping bag idea, and ask his doc about liquid Zoloft, too. He definitely does experience a lot of anxiety. He can’t always articulate it, but last night he pointed to a comforter that is folded in his closet and told me he thought there was a child’s body wrapped up in it. That image even unsettled me.
