MY 10 y.o. son started middle school today. He threw up 4 times before getting him to school. We went over all the emergency contacts with him, the location of the safe room at his school (in case of a storm), and every other safety steps he asked about. I tried reeinforcing the fact that all his friends from 4th grade would be going to 5th grade with him, but nothing seemed to make him feel better. Also he asks questions he knows the answers to all the time such as while holding the jug of milk he will come all the way into the living room and ask if he can have some milk. Or he will be standing in the bathroom at our house and ask if he can go to the bathroom. We tell him to ask himself the questions before asking them outloud, but it only seems to help for a few minutes. He in gifted and talented at his school, but now I'm worried we need to do more.
