I realize I talk about Son A quite a bit here.

When he’s having a bad, anxiety-filled day, I take it on as well.

But I wonder if it’s just because I come from a long line of worriers.

There are all kinds of kids with all kinds of issues. My boy is not the only kid in the world with “issues.”

Parents: Do you worry about your children and much as I do? If so, how do you deal with it?

  7. apricotica said: I worry about my kid nonstop. I talk my husband’s ears right off about it. And then Jess gets the overflow.
  8. isemancometh answered: Yes, I guess I just tuck it away and hide it like you are supposed to do with feelings
