How to Stop OCD Thoughts
Child anxiety, just like that of adults, is a normal, healthy emotion sensed as a respond to many catalyst. But when anxiety becomes recurring, irrational and intense, it may be understood as a disorder. The occurence of anxiety attacks can weaken the child from effecting his normal duties in school and at home Even though it is largely safe, anxiety attacks can influence how the child lives. Since children are more delicate, they more liable to such attacks and the effects of these attacks may be more harsh than to adults. But what perpetuated anxiety attacks? Here are some of the most generally known reasons of anxiety attacks:
School Phobia and Separation Anxiety When a child reaches a certain age, he or she develops school phobia. The genuine reason for this is still hidden, but what exists is, the child becomes extremely anxious of going to school. A child demonstrate this fear by preparing reasons and reporting sickness such as toothaches, headache, and stomach cramps to keep them from going to school. School phobia is often linked to separation anxiety but the latter can manifest to situations other than in school (e.g. being with a group of people or joining other family for the weekend).
Once more, the actual justification for this is unknown. Separation anxiety is excessive fear of being away from someone whom the child is happy being with. Symptoms and signs of separation anxiety are similar to school phobia. Stress Stress is linked to anxiety attacks. It may be a result of heavy responsibilities at home and in school, unfinished projects, physical and psychological abuse, a school bully, circumstances that is unfit for the child’s age, violence, etc. Alter in lifestyle A child creates friends in school and in the community. These friends would make them feel happy and accepted.
So when the family moves to another place or to a different school, a child loses the friend and good feeling he or she has established and forces him or her to start all over again. If the child cannot cope with this stressful situation, it can lead to the occurrence of anxiety attack. Indirect Factors In many cases, anxiety attacks just come out of the blue, or come about without any convincing, clear or apparent reason. It may occur while the child is relaxed during the day and even while asleep. This may occur only once. Perhaps, an anxiety attack is brought about by unresolved internal issues, which are not directly linked with the spark.
For example, a child who experiences a demise of a loved one may panic whenever a certain, almost identical situation happens. The traumatic experience that they went through in the past which are not processed properly can come out, in this case through an attack. A child may also show the occurrence of anxiety attacks because the condition at hand reminded them about family crisis. disputes in the family as well as separation of parents may be traumatic to a child that when experiencing a similar situation, they goes into a panic. please remember that there is no single reason (and it takes several factors) for a child to have an anxiety attack, but whatever it is, what’s eminent is how do deal with it accurately.
