Does anyone here have a child struggling with separation anxiety? I think Davison might have it. He isn't full-blown, flipping out when I leave him or anything like that, but he definitely struggles with change. Any unusual change in our routine and he needs reassurance that I'm not leaving him. We talk about it all the time and I constantly tell him that I'm not leaving him, he's stuck with me forever, how we chose each other, etc. He LOVES talking about his adoption journey and wants every little detail but still seems uneasy about his place in the world. I know this is the age (He'll be 6 in June) where kids start developing a sense of independence and he seems afraid of it, yet he can extremely independent in some areas....its very odd. Honestly, I feel like his fear is between him and me. Like he's watching me personally to make sure I am who I say I am. Does that make sense? Do you think I should take him to counseling or just keep reassuring him that I'm here to stay and so is he?
