I have a daughter with anxiety. can anyone help? She is 6 years old, very intelligent. She moved schools in Septermber 2011 as we felt that the new school was better. She was fine going to school, but then her teacher asked to talk to me and said that she was not applying herself very well, not reading alone and only in a group, I told her that in my daughter's previous school she had had lots more attention, due to the classes being smaller. Teacher said maybe it is because daughter is not "Top dog" anymore. I said I didn;t think so and I was quite annoyed that she was portraying my daughter as being big headed or thinking she was better than anyone else, she is very sensitive and loving and always helps other children, who are finding things difficult.Teacher asked if daughter was naughty and I said sometimes, especially interrupting and not doing as she was told. Teacher then advised me to talk to Pastoral Carer who didn't really know why there was a problem but she advised me that there were some parenting classes available. She then advised she would get an Outreach Worker to visit us,. Some days later the OUtreach worker did visit and she didn't seem to think there was a problem and perhaps it was a lack of confidence due to going to a new school. She asked if we wanted any parenting lessons and I said no. I said that I thought the teacher was being a little premature in analyzing my daughter and if was a case of their being a clash between teacher and my daughter then I would move her to another school or class. The OUtreach Worker was very nice and she reported back to the teacher and then the teacher approached me after school and said " that was not social services that visited and if you want us to back off we will" I said " I know that she wasn't" Then we had parents evening and the teacher said my daughter still wasn't applying herself and she interrupted alot, but nothing different to what she had already said in our talk previously. After Xmas our daughter went back to school and seemed to be doing well,but a week into new term, she started washing her hands all the time until they were raw, she worries that she has peed in her wardrobe and expected me to wash all the clothes, her jumper fell in the bin in school the other day so she wanted me to wash her jumper which i did but next day she didn't believe me and wore a cardigan which then touched the coat she had worn the day before and wouldn;t wear coat or cardigan. She has had several anxiety attacks, I have talked to her and she says nothing is wrong, noone is bullying her the teacher is nice and she has lots of friends. Last night she came home with a reading book which she thinks she had read before and cried because they are not meant to read the same book twice and she could find no record in her reading book but she was adamant she had read it and she was so upset she cried herself to sleep in my arms. She repeatedly says her tummy hurts and her heart is breaking and I am so distraught I don't know what to do. Teacher just says she is doing well and she has matured and they are proud of her, but go see Pastoral carer for anything else, which i did phone and she said take her to the DR. Help someone!!
