The Box

We've been taking Lauren to a doctor for her PTSD issues and we finally found something that is working that she has suggested. It's a box, yep a box. but it's a " worry" box. Lauren has MAJOR separation and abandonment issues and this box has helped her with that. When she gets upset because daddy has to go to work or because of some other fear or worry she puts a rock in the box and closes it up because as her doctor told her " there's nothing we can do about it anyway" and you know what ? It's working, when she gets upset or worried she goes outside and gets a rock and puts it in the box and closes it up and she's OK again. It's amazing that this little wooden box has reduced the drama in 3 days of using it :)
