Anxiety in kids 

My 5 yo is suddenly afraid of bees. Everything is in bloom here, so the bugs and bees are out. But it's not lost on me that this new fear started the same day that they had to back to school after spring break. Something is going on with him, deeper than this new fear of bees. Just processing this I guess. Wish me luck as I talk to his teacher tomorrow. This is all new territory for me as a parent.

Hope your talk with the teacher goes well! Not sure if you have the resources where you live, but there might be a pollinator class for children in your area. Pollinator classes have been golden for my children.

@mamaria Thank you! We talked about this bee fear and his anxiety in general. She's going to talk to the school counsellor and get back to me. A friend suggested watching videos and/or reading books about bees, which my son seemed very into doing, so we'll see if we can turn that fear into curiosity. :) I haven't heard of any classes, but we do have a Honeybee center down the road from us - I should check if they give tours or classes. Thanks for the suggestion.
