Okay, so when my middle daughter was in the first grade (before the abuse came out into the open) her teacher told us that she has a really hard time with change in schedule. If they usually sang the ABC's everyday for example and one day she decided not to, my daughter would become very upset asking when they are going to sing them and just couldn't grasp that she simply decided to skip this step. She was like that with a lot. The abuse came out and we finally understood that her behavior towards these kinds of situations were stemming from the abuse and hoped that since it was all out and no longer a secret that maybe this behavior would change. When she went into the 2nd grade I explained this to her new teacher even suggesting she have her 1st grade teacher fill her in on her behavior like this so she is aware of why she does it and knows what to expect, if she even continues it at all. Her 2nd grade teacher never commented on it so we kind of hoped that because the abuse came out and they "successfully" passed therapy, that this was behind us. Her teacher probably didn't say anything because we already knew about it, where we figured because she didn't say anything that she no longer did this. Well, the my co- owner at the daycare told me that over the summer (she had her class, I worked in the baby room) said she would have a hard time with things. They did lots of activities and if she decided to have a play day or did circle time in a different order that my daughter would have a hard time accepting it. She couldn't wrap her head around it. She thinks maybe we should put her back in therapy. I have always felt that working with the girls at home did way more than the therapy (and sadly the therapist agreed that they did so well with it all because of everything we did at home and even asked us what we did so she could use it for other children) and I am not thrilled about the idea of sending her back. But at the same time I am not sure how to go about tackling this one. My co- owner seems to be nervous that my daughter will develope OCD of some type, which is very possible if we don't do anything. Has anyone encountered this issue with their children and does anyone have any advise on how to tackle it?
