Your child may have a deep fear of being away from loved ones.
Some children are very affectionate. They love their parents with all of their beings. It is nice to be loved, but if your children tend to steer away from anyone who is not you, that may be because of anxiety. As children grow older, you should notice that they want to be more independent about the decisions they’re making in their lives. There is a problem, however, if they’re still afraid to be away from you. If your child is unwilling to be away from you, it can completely disrupt your family’s routine and make life difficult.
It is not only affecting your child, but it could also negatively affect you. You may also feel like you will need to avoid making plans without your child because of the problems it causes. It is not just younger children who can feel extreme emotions from a distance. Separation anxiety can become detrimental to older children, leading to stomach aches, chest pains, nightmares, and profuse sweating. You should seek medical attention if you notice any of these symptoms. Talk to a child psychologist to see how to help your child cope with separation anxiety.
