I wouldn't say difficult child has anxiety often but I have now realized what I thought was immature and inappropriate behavior was actually bouts of anxiety. Whenever easy child would get hurt playing, I would be tending to her crying and wiping her scrape and he would come up in my face and ask for a snack. Also, he asks question after question when he is anxious. Today he had a Dr's appointment and we were running late and he just began firing questions my way. I actually feel bad for the little dude and try to reassure him and not show my own anxiety over a difficult or scary situation. It doesn't happen often and we are able to manage it. Just thought I would mention this incase anyone else has these issues with their difficult child and isn't aware that the behaviors may be anxiety.
