difficult child is now in the third grade, and they are starting to teach some basic biology, like what your bones do, your lungs, basically the high points of what each major system does in your body. The problem is that this is causing difficult child major, major anxiety. The diagram of the muscles in his textbook? He won't even look at it. He cries and says it scares him and makes him think of bad things happening in his body. Same with the skeleton diagram. Focusing on the human body is making him anxious about his own body, and now he worries about his bones breaking or hitting his head "so his brain stops telling his lungs to breathe". He'll be ten in three weeks. Any advice on how to help him get through this without failing science? Or how to approach the teacher about the issue?
