The Anxious Child
1 Clock Hour of Early Childhood Education
1 Clock Hour
We all know the feeling. The restlessness, butterflies in your stomach, and racing heart, otherwise known as anxiety. Just like adults, children experience this feeling of worry in their lives as well. But what’s the difference between a normal amount of fear and an anxiety problem? We will examine that question in this topic. We will also discuss some of the most common anxiety disorders and identify the differences between them, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, phobias, and general anxiety. Ways educators can work with parents and doctors to help alleviate stress for children will be discussed as well.
