One of the most frustrating things for both me and my kids alike is their struggle with making decisions. It’s like they don’t trust that they can make a good choice.
We’ve learned that we can’t ask any open ended questions without causing them undo stress and anxiety.
I can’t ask “what do you want for dinner?”
That question will result in the inevitable meltdown because it leave things to open ended and with too many possible choices.
Instead, I need to ask something like “do you want chicken for dinner?” That is a simple one answer question.
This gets frustrating for me because it seems to make everything take so much longer.
You folks ever deal with this type on anxiety driven indecision?
