For a child who is unusually anxious, early intervention is important. If left unaddressed, an anxiety disorder that develops in childhood is likely to stay with the child into adulthood.
Fortunately, anxiety in children is highly treatable. With appropriate help, very many children and teens learn to bring their anxiety down to manageable levels, greatly improving their mental well-being and their enjoyment of everyday activities.
That’s great news for parents. Still, many parents are left wondering, Does my child need help or not? Are my child’s worries normal for their age, or is my child developing anxiety issues?
And if my child really does have a problem with anxiety, what can I do to help?
