I kept q away from it but on sat afternoon he heard it on the radio. Then he saw some comments between his approved shows on tv. Just no way to hide it. Plus they talked in school a little. School sent a safety note home. So, Saturday night he wouldn't stay in the living room where he watches his show and I was upstairs folding laundry and on the computer. By eight o'clock he was talking a mile a minute about everything on his mind. Then I had to go witb him to check locks. Then he would.suddenly scream a high pitched panic real fear scream and run into my room. He finally said that they said someone had more guns. I figured out he heard the mom had the guns. I.explained that the police got all of his guns now and he died so can't do any more harm. He was truly scared. I.offered to watch holiday old time movies with him like Santa Claus is coming to town etc. He held JJ between us and finally agreed to go to bed. He screamed a couple more times about hearing sounds etc. I.walked thru the house for him again. Sun was a little better because we were with family most of the day. At night he ended up falling asleep on my bed again. When I woke him to go to his room he walked in my closet! Poor.boy. Tonight he has awakened twice so far saying, " we live in a safe neighborhood, right Mom?" He has needed reassurance off and on like this in his life most recently when we moved here. But he had settled so well. I'm struggling (much like the topic of sex) with how much to talk to him because he perseverates so much and says such inappropriate things. He said today after school, upon finding out his Integrated Listening Systems (ILS) worker couldn't come, that he wished I was in that school and died. About thirty minutes after he went to bed he came in and said he was really sorry he said that to me. First truly spontaneous apology (not trying to get out of a consequence because I ignored it anyway) I can think of. He said he will only feel comfortable living witb me forever. (Sorry dude, not gonna happen ) Anyone else have kids have such obvious anxiety from this?
