exercise. drink milk (it has tryphtophan in it and it will relax you a little). chamomile tea. it's normal to be nervous, and if yore predisposed to anxiety you will be more anxious. it's fine. in nature, if we didt worry, we'd get eaten by larger mammals. your ancient brain is still in fight or flight mode. it gets easier over time.

[ - ] DS is in 7th grade a school that is very academic and kids are well supervised and a bit sheltered. I have noticed that the girls are beginning to be quite sexually aggressive. They actively seek out attention from the boys and compete with each other for the boys' attention. I am betting that most parents are not talking to their 12-year-old girls about their sexuality and desire for boys' attention. 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

They develop zero social skills, zero ability to handle themselves, zero ability to assess situations and respond appropriately. You're sending your daughter to college with the social acumen of a 10 year old. They're not "innocent", they're unnaturally sheltered and socially retarded.
