Your child may withdraw from activities they previously enjoyed.
Does your child love to draw, read, or play dress-up all of the time? Maybe they enjoy certain toys like dolls or cars and even have a favorite stuffed animal. You have probably watched the same cartoon movie over and over again — sometimes multiple times on the same day. Yes, most children’s hobbies evolve as they mature. However, one sign of anxiety might be when the child suddenly loses interest in activities they previously enjoyed.
Often there is a reason that they are avoiding those certain activities. If they have experienced a situation that has caused them anxiety, they may make every effort to avoid places, people, or activities that remind them of the event. Their sudden loss of interest in what used to be their favorite activities can sign that something is going on. You should pay close attention to your child to see how they are feeling. Don’t be scared to mention something to them or a doctor.
