My almost 9yo dd told me last night that she thinks she's stupid or crazy because she apologizes to everything in her mind, all the time. Last night she was having trouble getting a shirt on a hanger and she threw the shirt on ground, then said sorry to the shirt (in her mind). She got mad and then stomped her foot on the ground - and said sorry to the slipper and thought she hurt it and it needed an icepack - the slipper that is...she is a very smart little girl who understands that objects do not have feelings, but she says that she can't stop saying sorry to things.
I will be back soon but wanted to throw that out there to get some feedback, I told her we would figure this out together and get a plan today. She asked me about it first thing this morning so I know it's on her mind.
She is very bright A+ student, just finished cognitive testing for ADHD (which will be diagnosed). My 2yo is throwing up, gotta go!
