- Does your child cling to your leg when you have to leave?
- Does your child avoid socializing with other kids?
- Does your child lose sleep due to nervousness or fear?
- Do you find yourself frequently telling your child everything’s going to be okay?
- Are you constantly answering your child’s “What if” questions?
- Does your child just worry a lot about seemingly little things?
A long time ago worry helped our ancestors survive in a dangerous environment. If they detected a Saber-toothed cat in the grass, their worry system would put them on alert and signal them to skedaddle or else become lunch. This is called the negativity bias and it’s a good thing. It kept our ancestors alive so they passed it down to us.
Fortunately, we live in a much safer world now with house cats instead of saber-toothed ones. Our worry system doesn’t need to be on high alert all the time.
Children with anxiety are CONSTANTLY on high alert and seeking out danger even when there is no danger. They are unnecessarily putting themselves in fight or flight mode. This is why children with anxiety are nervous, jittery, moody, unfocused, need constant reassurance, don’t sleep well, are overly self-critical or hypersensitive.
In short, they are not in control of their own worry.
