I am curious to know whether most of you feel that extra-curricular activities help or hurt kids with anxiety. My daughter went through a bad patch of school aversion last year with preschool, but overcame it with therapy. She seems to be handling Kindergarten like a champ so far. She was already taking a leisure gymnastics class last year and this year she started a more intense class, which she also seems to be handling well. Because she's only in Kindergarten half-days I've also enrolled her in two more extra-curricular classes that will start soon and she is enthusiastic about them.
One of the reasons I'm doing this is because last year's school aversion seems to have been a combination of a PTSD reaction to specific events combined with adoption-related anxiety. In other words, she's not stressed out by being challenged and I thought more positive associations and fun activities would build her confidence.
Has this worked for anyone here in the past?
