How to Spot Signs of Anxiety in Children
Watch Out for These 5 Anxiety Indicators
It’s natural for parents to want to protect their children and make them feel good all the time. As such, they’re concerned when their kids have to deal with anxiety, which makes them feel uncomfortable.
It’s completely normal for children to feel anxious at times. This happens when they’re exposed to situations, experiences, or even people that they haven’t encountered before.
The best thing that you can do for your kids is to allow them to handle anxiety without your help as much as possible. Resist the urge to coddle them every time they start to feel anxious. This way, they won’t have to rely on you every time the anxiety bug hits them. The more familiar and experienced they become with the feeling, the better they’ll be able to deal with it the next time it happens.
Still, this doesn’t mean that you should leave them totally on their own. Keep an eye out for them by being aware whenever they’re experiencing something that’s causing them anxiety. Kids Car Donations lists these five signs of anxiety in children:
- You see changes in their behavior.
Watch out for behavioral changes in your child such as aggression, moodiness, or short tempers. This could be caused by anxiety.
- They have difficulty concentrating.
Dealing with anxiety can lead to problems with your child’s concentration. They lose focus a lot faster than usual and are easily distracted.
- They lose appetite.
If your child is typically an avid eater but suddenly skips on their meals, this could be caused by the anxiety they’re dealing with.
- They have sleeping problems.
Has your child been having trouble sleeping lately? If they can’t seem to get a good night’s sleep and have suddenly started suffering from insomnia, it could be linked to anxiety.
- They withdraw from friends and family.
Your child may be suffering from anxiety if you see them staying in their room most of the time, not having the energy to go out, and just keeping to themselves. This behavior is especially alarming when exhibited by usually extroverted and playful children.
