I need help. I am scared of everything. I am only 10 years old but I'm still scared to even go on playdates for an hour! I need help. I need someone to comfort me and maybe I'll feel better.
My parents get mad at me for being so afraid but I can't help it! I'm just a stupid baby then I guess, and I probably will be for the rest of my life until I get more help.
Dear Fearful Friend,
I think that your parents should not make fun of you at all. If they can't understand your feelings they should get you some outside help. Have you spoken to the counselor at your school? They have been trained to help children who feel like you do. You need someone to help you build up your confidence; not to tear it down.
I can see that you are in your formative years and think like you are older. You recognize your problem so start by talking to your teacher and he or she will help you gain confidence and you can go from there.
