Last night I used some of the suggestions in the article I found.
They worked really well. I talked about it with Glen and he is going to use some of the approaches as well.
We are going to "warm him up" by preparing him for situations where he might feel threatened, like at a restaurant. We talk about what the situation may be like, what he can order and just ready him for it.
I think we will just have to do this every day to make sure the day goes well. Let him know what is going to happen and etc.
He is also going to need lots of reassurance and love and hugs. He is very emotional and loving little guy. We need to make sure he is getting it. Being the middle child is hard and he needs to be seen and heard.
