Call your pediatrician: Your primary care pediatrician will help you rule-out medical causes of sleeplessness and anxiety, including sleep apnea, allergies, snoring, medication side effects, and much more. Your pediatrician can also provide anxiety medications and may be able to treat uncomplicated anxiety without a referral to psychiatry. Be specific, child style. When you discuss your return, provide specifics that your child understands.

Fear of failure, fear of looking bad in front of friends, or fear of not meeting a goal all contribute heavily to a child’s anxious feelings surrounding a situation. Help your child to focus on the process instead of the goal. Empathize with your child. You really need your child to feel comfortable sharing with you their feelings and worries.
By showing your empathy and understanding you will make sure your child doesn´t hide fears because they have been labeled as.
