My youngets evidentally has severe test anxiety...so bad that the teacher (4th grade) she has is so concerned that she called me today frantic that my daughter did poorly on a test and wanted to know if it was ok to tell her she lost it and have her re-do the test orally with her. I said absolutely...sure enough her oral test was 100%...no mistakes what so ever. I dont know where to turn or what to do but she has such severe anxiety. I was on the insurance web site trying to find a Psychologist for her becuase she is really going thru a tremendous amount of anxiety which seems to be getting wors eand worse. To the point where so wont have a pay date wiht anyone and she now refuses to go to her fathers house on his visitation weekends. She also wont leave my side. Its gotten really bad. Its affecting her in school too....THANK GOD she has an awesome dedicated loving and understanding teacher who is also so concerned about her.Im so worried about her. Any suggestions other than her needing a therapist? Her poor confidence is in the toilet and I cried all the way home from work today after her teacher told me. The teacher said she would tell her that she lost her test today and she would have to retake it with her. She did that so she could "experiment" with her to see if this truly is test anxiety...sure enough, she knew eveyrthing perfectly that was on the test no problem. This isnt the only test she has "bombed" out on. Its been happening alot. Then when the teacher goes one on one with her she ends up getting A's. Any help would be greatly apperciated. Thanks! Please say a prayer for her too. I feel like a horrible Mother not being able to protect her from feeling this anxiety. My comforting,reassuring and hard work with her evidentally isnt enough. I am so heart broken for her. Id love some advice.
