There was apparently a lot of raucous going on though. He told me there was a big fire and people were drinking "space water" (beer and liquor). And he's been exposed to worse while he was with his mom. Just more stuff for the counselor to help me with.

Well, you can still take him to Hooters!

Sorry to hear there is more trauma that he went through. Hang in there man, and try not to over-analyze everything. We can do that for ya!

I'll leave the analyzing to the counselor (for him, I think you guys qualify as MY counselor). In the meantime, I'm just trying to convince him that, "no, I don't think that's acceptable".

The thing that worries me the most is that he's now absolutely terrified of being kidnapped and of my being out of his sight for any more than a few seconds unless he's at school or if he's with someone else he trusts (like my sister or his babysitter). If it's just me and him, or us and other people he doesn't know REALLY well, he goes into a panic if I even just step away long enough to take a leak. He says he's afraid he's going to be taken away from me again.

That is really sad and really cute at the same time.

He has been through more than any child should ever have to go through. Just keep talking to him about it, and he will hopefully be able to deal with it pretty well.

That is unbelievably sad. I'll be sure to send a few prayers your way.

Do absolutely everything in your power to make him feel secure at all times. Separation anxiety is normal for a kid that has been through what he has been through. Maybe get a couple of those FRS radios or a cell phone for him so he can call you any time. I am not normally in favor of young kids having cell phones, but in his case it might be appropriate. Check with his counselor though.

Also, never, ever try to "toughen him up" by hiding from him or any other such thing like that. He has separation anxiety and that would make it far worse for him.

Hehe, It may not be a bad idea to get a couple of Walkies. We're in a trailer now, and our rooms are on opposite ends. It would be really cool to talk to each other without having to yell, and he could holler at me over the radio when he wakes up in the middle of the night. Plus, he'd just have a blast with it. Maybe then he won't crawl in the bed with me. A few nights ago, I was woken up at 2 when he got in my bed. Then 3 when he kicked me in the mouth. Then 4 when he kicked me in the back of the head (I'd rolled over because my lip was swelling and I didn't want to get hit in the face again). And then my alarm went off at 5.

I remember those days! My youngest son would crawl in between mom and me and end up sideways with me getting his damn feet! I would usually just go to his bed because otherwise I wouldn't get any sleep.

All little boys love walkie-talkies. Those FRS ones are pretty good, the GMRS ones have longer range though. You have a bunch of channels you can use and have a plan for changing channels if someone else comes on the channel you are using. It would definitely make his day- maybe Christmas?

Does he want to be a kick boxer by any chance?
