I'm reaching out for a bit of sympathy, advice, and encouragement as I try to help my DC deal with something that seems to be getting worse rather than passing.
She has always been an easy going kid with a very slight tendency towards being a worrier. She has had sleep issues in the past (confusional arousal, I think) and something similar is happening again.
On and off DC expresses her worries in the evening - like late, past bed time, when I am ready to be done parenting for the day. I try to deal with it when it is mild by asking her to remember to talk to me in the day time.
The night-time issues seem to be getting worse so I don't think that solution will work right now.
How would you handle this? Considering the fact that the evenings are just not my best time as a parent. And that I suppose I have trouble understanding what it's like to be a worrier.
