Our expert says:
It sounds like you're very conscientious and a very caring mum. It sounds as if it would be useful for your child to see a child psychologist who could explore why she has recently become so insecure ( in the various ways you describe ). You should discuss the issues of how best you as a parent can deal with this, both directly with your intern therapist, and ask to see and speak to the child shrink after he/she has seen and assessed your lass, so that his/her advice can be directly related to whatever he/she finds has been troubling the girl. Also, try asking around at the single mum's support group - I'm sure many of them will have met and coped with similar problems. One aspect of such problems that can reverberate a bit, is that as you grow anxious about the child's anxiety, the child grows more anxious, and so on.
