School Anxiety, Phobia & Panic Attacks The following school anxiety counseling question comes from an actual ScottCounseling, "Ask A Counselor" question. This parenting question and ScottCounseling response may help you parent a child suffering from school anxiety attacks. Parents Background Information: My 11 year old son, Tony, started Middle School this year. He has always had some self- esteem problems and confidence issues and afraid of things like windy nights, spiders, etc.
When he played baseball he would always step out of the batter’s box because he was afraid he would be hit. He lets anxieties prevent him from doing things that he really wants to do. In the past I have pushed him to try to get over these anxieties but he is not responding to pushing anymore. Starting in the spring of 5th grade Tony started getting more and more anxious about middle school (complaining of another change in schools). That same summer he became very upset when his sister moved to college and his brother moved out on his own.
Then school started and he had stomach aches and threw up daily at school but would then go right back to class. Tony is seeing a psychiatrist for medication. He takes Vyvannse, 50 mg, to help him focus. He takes Lexapro 8 ML daily for anxiety. This was at 6 ML at the beginning of the school year but we have been continuing to very, very slowly increase as the year progresses due to evidence of increased anxiety.
He has a tic too - sniffs a lot. We believe this is due to the Vyvannse. As the tic has become more frequent, teasing has started increasing which has increased the Anxiety. Just days before winter break, Tony suffered a Grand Mal seizure at home (his first and only so far). He does not remember the event but it was very traumatic to him being in the hospital afterwards. He has been to several doctors since then to test him to see what is going on. Since winter break ended on January 5th, Tony has not been able to attend school all day.
He vomits in school, has anxiety attacks - panting, shortness of breath. The school calls to tell me what is going on. The first 2 times I ran to the school to take him home but the second I got him home he was fine, laughing and happy to be home. I no longer go to get him. We try to talk him down and tanio mieszkania do wynajęcia świdnik get him back to class. We are only hit or PłUgofrezarka GrudziąDz miss successful at this. Last week my husband and I had a meeting with the school psychiatrist, school guidance counselor, Ogloszenia Towarzyskie Grojec school nurse along with Tony’s psychologist to discuss strategies.
The psychologist wanted the teachers to understand this is anxiety and he needs to be reminded of how brave he is and to encourage him to stay in class. The attendees for the school wanted his input on what they can do to help him because they are frustrated and they don’t know what to do.

He does also think Tony has serious self-esteem issues and problems connecting to others.
