Well, it happened on Tuesday. I got the call. You know, the one every camp parent dreads. The one where they tell you that your kid is very anxious and homesick and do you think it would be appropriate to talk with them?
- My daughter has been diagnosed with a smorgasbord of anxiety disorders, and suffers so acutely from them that she often struggles just to go to school every day. So for her to be at camp, for a week, overnight, without me…well, it’s just a staggering accomplishment in the first place, phone call or not.
- This kid did not leave camp, nor did she even ask to.
