Sue’s Mommy Blog-HELP, My Daughter is a Nervous Wreck
She's the love of my life- fresh, funny, truly a wonderful little soul that brings me sunshine every day! She's NOW 13 and her life and what she does is just so funny, it’s too funny not to talk about or write about! It’s all about sharing our adventures with you. Time flies. Thanks for all of your advice through the years, Mom's we are never alone! I guess it should be "Sue's Mom Blog", since she's so grown up now, totally laughing out loud at that!
Abby is the coolest kid, but she's exactly like my Mom a nervous wreck. Mom has always been so nervous about things that might happen, that never happen, and then she's nervous about being nervous...well Abs is just like her. Especially with her homework and tests. WE NEED HELP!
Abby can hang with anyone, be anyone's friend, laugh, joke, and can do pretty much anything but when it comes to homework and tests she just freaks out. She will call at least 3 friends a night asking about the homework, is the homework done, and is it right. THREE of them every night. On the weekends if she's with those friends, I'll hear her ask them several times at a sleep over, or while playing a game, and then again when I'm dropping them off as they're getting out of the car. They roll their eyes, "No Abby, no homework." I'm not sure if this is normal, but it doesn't seem like it.
When I Face-time her in the morning, she'll ask me, "Did I do my homework?" "Do I have everything?" I'm just a little concerned about this. I love the fact that she is on top of her stuff that needs to be done. She always does her homework and never complains. I'm not a nervous person, so I just don't know. I asked a couple of guidance counselors and they say it's "normal". But, what is "normal"? Maybe it's Abby's "normal"? I just always tell her to breathe, believe in yourself, and you can't go wrong.
PLEASE, if your kid is going through this email me firstname.lastname@example.org! Any ideas on what I should do to help her through this, please email me! Thank you!
