Thank you for contacting JA
Your child seems to be suffering from an anxiety disorder.I would avoid conflict and treat his anxiety matter of factly. The more anxious you behave, the more anxious he will act mirroring your behavior. I would suggest that he see a therapist that specializes in children. In addition I would suggest that you, the child and the therapist meet on a regular basis so you can develop strategies to lessen the anxiety. If the anxiety is paralyzing, you may wish to consider a psychiatrist who will be able to medicate. Again, the chi;ld is looking toward you for support so do not overreact-keep it as calm as you can. Be sure not to ridicule. Best wishes and good luck.
