It is common for most children to experience fear and anxiety. While it is a normal reaction that becomes useful when handling unsettling and challenging experiences, feeling anxious or afraid can make a child uncomfortable. If it is bordering on excessive and baseless fear or phobia, it may also stand in the way of the child’s performance and achievements. Many children with excessive fear may also develop certain behaviors that make it more difficult for them to socialize with others.
Children may experience and overcome anxiety at certain stages in their lives. The stranger anxiety may make babies cling to the parent or person they know in the presence of a person they don’t know. The separation anxiety may cause a toddler to have an outburst triggered by anxiety or fear when they see the parents leaving. The fear of the supernatural is commonly expressed by children ages 4 to 6. Most would outgrow this fear to be replaced by anxiety for real dangers such as earthquake, typhoons, accidents, etc.
Your child would need you to step in when the kind of fear or anxiety they feel is intense, even when there is no actual or real threat or when the fear or anxiety is making it difficult for them to perform normal activities, For instance, when your child would not take the school bus or your family car because of an intense fear for road accident, it will make him/her refuse school. Having a social phobia may cause the child to be a loner, which deprives him/her the pleasure of having friends. Your daughter or son may also manifest unusual behaviors to conceal anxiety, excessive fear of phobia.
Childhood is supposed to be a happy time for your child. While anxiety and fears may be normal, they aren’t when they have grown to be overwhelming emotions. When weighed down by intense emotions they don’t understand, these may cause them to act out their anxiety, excessive fear and OCD.
