How to Spot and Treat Anxiety in Kids, According to Child Psychologists

Often, the signs of anxiety in kids aren't what you'd expect.

School-Age. Once kids are in school, some common worries include impressing their peers, performing well in school, making parents happy, things they've seen on the news, and family issues (like a sick loved one or loss of employment).

Tweens and Teens. Kids in this age group tend to worry about their peer group, academics, athletic performance, crushes and relationships, and material possessions. Social media is another big concern. This age is "especially susceptible to the constant mood swings from counting the number of likes to their posts, counting the seconds before someone responds to a text, and absorbing the false and painful messages that make it look like everyone else's life is perfect and theirs is terrible,” Dr. Cohen says. As if all of that isn’t enough, older teens also tend to worry about the future (getting a job, college, and so on).
