Anxiety can present in different ways, and there are various anxiety disorders in addition to generalized anxiety disorder. Types of anxiety in children include:
The signs and symptoms of anxiety in children will vary depending on the type of anxiety and the specific child—no two people will have exactly the same symptoms or causes of anxiety. Some symptoms of anxiety to watch out for include difficulty concentrating, poor sleep habits, crying, behavioral issues (i.e. tantrums), being clingy, constant worry, angry outbursts, poor eating habits, and feeling tense. For young children, bed wetting could also be a sign of anxiety or another disorder.
