What do we mean by anxiety in children, and should parents be concerned about it? Many parents are unsure about when their child’s behaviour is something for them to worry about, or whether it is fairly typical behaviour for children of that age.
Many parents are not sure whether to be concerned when a usually talkative 8 year old becomes withdrawn and pre-occupied, when an 11 year old feels sick every school morning or when an adolescent suddenly begins to refuse to leave their room. It can often appear like a minefield for parents, trying to find out whether their child’s behaviour is expressing real worry or unhappiness, and if so, to understand what is behind it.
As many as 8 – 11% of children and adolescents suffer from an anxiety that affects their ability to get on with their lives. This talk will help parents spot early warning signs of anxiety and help them better support their children. It will also look at how parents can help children’s coping skills more generally through a range of evidence-based strategies.
