Mother of a 14 year year old is extremely worried about the news that schools may possibly re-open in July. Knowing her son, she feels afraid that he would be exposing himself to a lot of risks not just in school but also while walking to and back from school. Her anxiety is getting un-manageable as she cannot stop thinking of the worst possible scenarios. The counselor has tried to help her look at the situation more realistically and tried to re-assure but this is not helping. What should the counselor do?
