Trying to work out anxiety about demands

Sun 17 Sep 2017 11:13am

Hello! I am trying to work out why I get so anxious about demands and I am really interested to hear from anyone else about their own experiences of this.

I get panic attacks and anxiety about demands. I want to give an example because 'demands' means weird things to me.

Did you know that autistic-like behaviours do not necessarily mean your child has autism?

Sat 19 Aug 2017 2:00pm

Did you know that autistic-like behaviours do not necessarily mean your child has autism? Are you worried about autistic-like behaviours because your child• does not talk, play, interact, eat, respond or behave as you would expect at this age?• shows repetitive or controlling behaviours like lining things up, flapping hands, tantrums or insisting on sameness?

under 2 year showing signs of autism

Tue 15 Aug 2017 8:49pm

Hi all, I have just started out as a childminder. I have took on a little boy aged 23 months his mother is Russian and father Polish. He has an elder half brother who lives with him and speaks fluent English. The little boy has no language in any of the languages he associates with. I also think he has sensory issues we were at the park and his trousers got a little wet and muddy and he was distraught. He is also extremely fussy with food as in complete refusal to try anything.

Anger issues...

Sun 23 Jul 2017 2:53pm

Hello again, I am having some problems with my anger, it's been like this for a long time...a lot of things can set it off and once it goes, THERE IS NO CONTROLLING IT!!! That is my problem, if it can't be controlled while I am actually angry... what can I do? Everyone just keeps telling me "control it" or step away from the situation,.... isn't easy especially when one of those things KEEPS following me wherever I go and intentally bugs me just so I would lose my temper (my sister) and when that happens, I shout, scream, throw a fit, the usual stuff...
