Understanding Childhood Anxiety

Why this resource is helpful:

Anxiety is the intense, and oftentimes overwhelming, feeling of being worried, afraid, or nervous. At some point in our lives, we"ve all felt anxious and it is normal to feel some anxiety in certain situations, such as having to take a test or giving a presentation. A little anxiety can sometimes even motivate us to prepare for situations and to perform better. It is normal for children to have fears and worries and many times, theses worries and fears go away on their own. However, when these feelings start to get in the way of daily functioning, it can cause significant distress and dysfunction for the child and their caregivers. It is important to consider how much anxiety the child is facing, how long it has been a concern, and how much it is getting in the way.
