The childhood anxiety report also details common symptoms parents should look for to recognize an anxiety disorder, including physical symptoms such as repeated stomach or headaches and muscle tensions or excessive worrying about something bad happening and frequently feeling nervous or obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors as well as difficulties falling or staying asleep, fear of making mistakes, irritability or difficulty separating from the parents, and more.

Parenting tips and essential information on common therapy options available to help overcome the increasingly common childhood anxiety disorders, which according to the Anxiety & Depression Association of America (ADAA) affect one in eight children with 80% currently not getting the proper treatment and at a higher risk of performing poorly in school, missing out on important social experiences or engaging in harmful behavior or substance abuse, are also included.
