Role Playing

One of our anxiety coping strategies is to act out various situations, allowing Ana to practice using her words to express her feelings and ask for what she needs.

Tuesday, on the ride home from preschool, she asked me to play the part of Joshua who took some scissors away from her before she was done using them. An easy part, I just talked loudly, made some grunting noises, and acted grabby. Chickie seemed to be satisfied with my performance because she told me that she wasn't done and that it was still her turn (hooray!).

She asked to go through it again, so I started my Joshua imitation up once more.

No! No! This time you be the scissors!
