A Whole New World
Many of you probably do not know, but our four year old has been having some problems in her preschool. She LOVES it, loves her teacher and the kids, but she is unable to speak there. Not just there, but at Awanas, soccer and to most anyone she is not around frequently. We took her to the pediatrician today because we are concerned she has a disorder called Selective Mutism. Go ahead. Google it. It is amazing! Comforting, because we are obviously not alone in this and terrifying because it is more serious than I originally thought. You can read positive accounts and then find a story about teachers who punished kids for not speaking. Anyways, please be praying for her. They are sending her to a pediatric psychologist. I will keep everyone posted.
