Hi,



This is a peculiar request, but I know there is such a wealth of experience among all the fabulous people on this list-serv, so I thought I’d reach out.



We have a very sweet, hard-working, curious young man in 8th grade who is also extremely anxious. He has gradually built a very safe box around himself (he reads non-fiction, and some science fiction, and that’s about it). He feels comfortable (most of the time) within those restraints. But he is becoming more and more anxious about how to best complete his school-work, etc. It’s not that he doesn’t do the work—it’s that he spends 45 minutes devising the perfect plan and strategy to do it. Similarly, he is concerned about being healthy—but finds it impossible to follow EVERY guideline—and gets paralyzed when he can’t. He doesn’t have a melt-down, he just gets stuck.



The administration has spoken with his parents about getting professional help for him, and they seem to be open to the idea (a not-so-common occurrence in China) but in the meantime, we receive emails like this from him (this was addressed to all of his subject teachers, myself, and the admin):





Dear Teachers,



How do you do time management? How do you organize things? How do you research? I think I'm not very good at these, so please answer the questions to help me.

Sincerely,

(name removed)



I’ve already had several individual meetings with him about research, but he still feels like it isn’t “exact” or “scientific” enough—and I keep telling him that that’s because it isn’t! But I (and we) are a little bit at a loss as how to best serve him. Our school does not have an on-site counselor or learning specialist.



Thank you for any advice or sharing past experiences.



Susan
