does anyone else have a 4 yr old who stresses out over EVERYTHING? My daughter is so advanced in verbal skills, but emotionally I think sometimes she's having issues. Everything makes her stressed out and whiny. We were outside tonight looking at the tomatoes. There were worms on them so my husband was taking care of that for us. My daughter was stressing out the whole time about the worms, they were going to get her, she didn't like them, they were going to eat her, then she moved on to the bugs, that the bugs were biting her, she was getting tons of mosquitoe bites (she wasn't, none of us were), she needed bug spray, she wanted to go in, she wanted to swing but couldn't swing herself, she wanted to play hide and seek but then cried when she couldn't find anyone....on and on. It's one whine or complaint after another. It gets exhausting and I find myself telling her to "chill out, it's FINE" a hundred times a day. She can be SO high strung! And she tattles CONSTANTLY! If I'm in a different room I get a play by play of what is happening where she is and who is doing what. Any suggestions?
