Vulnerable child syndrome is a medical condition that affects children and their parents. It develops when a child has a potentially life-threatening issue during infancy such as prematurity, a birth problem, or an illness that causes parents to have overwhelming feelings of anxiety and fear about their child’s health even if the child is doing well and growing in a normal, healthy way. Vulnerable child syndrome (VCS) describes a phenomenon in which a child is perceived as being at higher risk for medical, behavioral, or developmental problems than is warranted by the child’s current health. It is most often thought to occur in children who have experienced a serious or life-threatening event or who have a chronic medical condition. T. Berry Brazelton M.D., in Encounters with Children (Fourth Edition), 2006.
Stein prepares us in the perinatal period for preventing the “ vulnerable child syndrome.” Dixon says “parents of premature infants are premature, too.” Kaiser addresses the important issue of mothers dealing with sibling rivalry in the postpartum period. Though most premature infants do well, they are particularly at risk for the “vulnerable child syndrome.” This is a child with an imagined or real illness early in life, resulting in the parents developing a long-term sense of the child being particularly susceptible to illness or injury. Vulnerable child syndrome is described as a “set of clinical features in which unfounded parental anxiety about the health of a child resulted in disturbances of the parent-child interaction,”. Vulnerable child syndrome, parental perception of child vulnerability, and emergency department usage. Chambers PL(1), Mahabee-Gittens EM, Leonard AC.

Parents may also develop symptoms of what has been termed the ‘vulnerable child syndrome.’ In this syndrome, parents with a history of having a medically fragile infant become overprotective, limiting their child’s independence, because they want to make up for their child’s trauma.
In 1964 Green and Solnit described a phenomenon, the Vulnerable Child Syndrome (VCS), whereby children who were at one point in their lives expected to die subsequently recovered, but their health continued to be perceived as being more vulnerable than it in actuality was, resulting in heightened anxiety in parents that causes disturbance in parent-child interactions and adverse, long lasting outcomes in the child.
