An anxious child may become overly dependent on you.
Your job as a parent is to raise a self-reliant child, but that sort of confidence does not come so easily to some young people. Your child already relies on you for their necessities in life, but an anxious child is likely to follow you around wherever you go. In the worst-case scenario, a child will have a complete meltdown if you step out of the room, even for a few minutes. This over-dependence can make leaving the house for errands or work especially difficult and can take its toll on you, the parent as well.
How to console your child through their panic attack is first to identify that there is a problem. There is an issue if they follow you to the bathroom and wait outside if they relish helping out the teacher at school or need constant attention and reassurance from teachers to feel safe. Speak to a doctor or child psychologist to determine the steps to take to keep your child from being too dependent on their parents. Making your child more reliant requires giving them the confidence to know that the separation is only temporary, and becoming independent is a healthy way to grow.
