Fear of being alone may be a sign of anxiety.
Is your child clingy? It is natural for them to love you so much, even more than anyone else. After all, your kids have known you forever and take solace in your naturing ways. Being best friends with your youngins, and spending lots of time together is great. They might even throw a fit when it is time to stop playing and start cleaning or doing homework. However, the fear of being alone and away from you is something more serious. In fact, it can even be a sign of anxiety if your kid has a fear of being alone.
Some children may have a small fear of being alone. Others may have extreme fear and worry about being left alone; that is part of a more significant issue. The child may fear being lost from their family or that something terrible may be occurring to a family member if he or she is not with the person. While it is normal to have this fear to some extent, it is not common for it to be an excessive amount of fear and cause anxiety. The fear of being alone may be brought on by biological or environmental factors or a combination of the two.
