RECOGNIZING ANXIETY IN CHILDREN Whether a child suffers from true depression or a kind of anxiety, the condition is serious.
kids who have anxiety as children are more likely to have depression as teens. About half of depressed teens had a childhood anxiety disorder. 85% of teens who have both anxiety disorders and depression had their anxiety disorder first.
Separation Anxiety-The most common childhood anxiety disorder is when a child fears there is a threat to his family.
Social phobia-These kids are extremely uncomfortable with the social aspects of school. They often become "socially mute." They'll talk with their father or mother or sister, but not with anyone outside the home
Generalized Anxiety Disorder- These kids worry excessively about the future.
