My 8 year old showed signs of social anxiety when he was 4 now he talks excessively?
Q:Is this how he has learned to deal with the social anxiety? If so he’s done the same thing that I did when I was in school. I hid it with my talking and the shell I put on myself. How can I help him? Husband doesn’t want him to go to doctor for it or put on medicine I have to make sure he is able to be fixed by me I don’t know if I can keep being super mom.

It’s possible that he is autistic, although it sounds like only slightly, or it’s possible he is just like you. I think it’s important to take him to the doctor for their opinion, just stress that you don’t want drugs and they should be able to directs to books and other alternative help. But if it’s the same thing you experienced than who better to help him but someone who went though it themselves. You may need someone professional to help you to help him, this might never be fixed but it can become manageable. If your husband still has reservations explain to him the stress your feeling and tell him that a healthy, happy mom is one of the most important ingredients for healthy, happy children. Maybe you should also consider the reasons why your husband doesn’t want him to go to the doctor, does he not want the drugs which you will ultimately decide, or is he afraid of the diagnosis that could change the way your child is treated.
