My ds (6 1/2 yrs old) has a real difficulty in making decisions- to the point that he practically begs us to choose for him because he CANNOT choose. He thinks about all of the aspects of his choices, becomes stuck, and cant go further. For instance, today I took him and his brother to the magic store for some practical jokes. They could each pick 2. They both took about 10 mins or so looking at the selection and finally we had to go. I told them, ok pick because now we have to go. His brother sort of weighed his options, then decided. DS2 panicked, and in the end, I had to suggest that we check out another store (next door). Once there, he couldn't decide again, and I had to "suggest" that he get a magazine instead. We went to 3 different magazine stores, but he couldn't pick one! For instance, there was 1 mag that he really liked, BUT the little toy that was attached was a cheapie plastic toy phone. He said that he already had a toy phone, so he couldn't possibly get that mag. I explained that he could use that phone on vacation, or leave it at his grandmas, or... sell it at the garage sale- the thing was, the magazine was really nice, but he couldn't even THINK about it because of the phone. Finally, I bought the mag, ripped the phone off the package and threw it in the garbage, gave him the magazine and he was THRILLED- almost as if he was relieved! This is just one instance- he's been like this since he was 3. Does anyone have any hints for excesses or games or websites that can help him to make decisions, and be happy with the ones he's made? Thanks!
