Anxious children may show behavioral signs.
Lashing out because of anxiety is also a symptom that some children may exhibit due to anxiety. Along with the physical and emotional, there are behavioral signs that should be carefully examined as well. If you notice that your child is showing these signs of behavioral problems, keep a close eye on what is happening and take note of any consistent patterns. Again, if these symptoms recur for six months, then there is an issue. The disruptive behaviors are keeping your child from conducting their everyday tasks.
Some of the signs you can look for are continually asking “what if” questions, preferring to stay inside during recess, or avoiding engaging with other students. More noticeable factors might include always seeking approval from others, having trouble focusing, and avoiding any social situation at all costs, including birthday parties or after-school activities. If your child displays any of these symptoms, take them to see a child psychologist to manage their anxiety. Working to find the trigger behind these anxious symptoms is a process that is worth figuring out for your child’s health and well-being.
