Are there any other tweens out there who have anxiety about getting older? We now have to call my son's 12 bday this saturday his 11.2 birthday. He seems to think he's going on 60. Now a little background. His birthday is the 30th of July and school always starts the first Monday in March. Every year his anxiety level the week before his birthday goes through the roof. Now I understand part of it... Happy Birthday! NOW GO TO THE NEXT GRADE LEVEL!
I can understand how that can cause pressure, but I don't know how to help him relax and realilze that a birthday is just a celebration and it doesn't mean I'm going to box up his legos.
I hate seeing him go through this every year... any help out there?
