Does Your Child Suffer from Anxiety?
Anxiety is an often misunderstood condition that affects people of all ages, including children. Worry and fear that don’t seem to have a specific source can be signs of anxiety, as can an inability to stay organised or focused.
Know the Signs of Anxiety in Your Child
Worry, especially when the source is not clearly defined, can adversely affect every aspect of life for a child.
Schoolwork can suffer, relationships can be made tense, making and keeping friends can be difficult, even just being out among people can be terrifying for a child with anxiety.
If your child has displayed what you consider to be irrational fears about performing everyday tasks like doing homework, getting dressed, bathing or anything else, or seems overly apprehensive about dealing with people, even close family members, it is time to consider whether or not he or she has anxiety.
There are also other possible causes of Anxiety in children. Among them are:
- Loss of a family member or beloved pet
- Early childhood injuries such as head trauma
- Frequent ear infections as an infant or toddler
- Abuse by a trusted adult, sibling or peer during childhood
- Moving home or changing schools
Anxiety Treatment Options
Most physicians will prescribe medication to treat the condition. If the child is yet undiagnosed, it is important to seek the opinion of a qualified medical professional about the situation. In some cases, prescription medications can work well. In other cases, effective treatments can come in alternative forms.
If your child has a diagnosis and you don’t reel right about medicating, it is important to understand that pharmaceutical remedies are not your only option. Barring certain extreme circumstances, anxiety is not a life-threatening condition. It can, however, drastically decrease the quality of life, which is why it is so important to address the issue in some constructive way.

The TOMATIS® Method is not a hearing therapy. It is a listening therapy that retrains the brain in processing a broad spectrum of sounds. By teaching the brain how to listen properly, the individual’s thought processes become sharper and more focused.
