Same scenario – A mother, worried about her 3 year old, has recently given up working, she presents lethargic and low. She said that the nursery have commented on her son’s cleanliness and appearance. They say he is withdrawn for his age and they are worried. Mum is now reluctant for him to go to the nursery but says she cannot cope with his demanding behaviour at home.
