Children experience stress and anxiety from many possible causes. They may face bullying on the playground or develop a phobia. Some don’t outgrow natural developmental stages like separation anxiety.
Teens also face bullying, discrimination, and peer pressure. Nearly one-third of teens have an anxiety disorder, while one in five struggle with depression. Children and teens may develop mental health disorders, such as:
ASD is often noticeable by age 1. Signs of the other conditions may appear as early as preschool or around age 6 or later.
Children too young to identify and express their feelings often act out with oppositional and defiant behaviors. Other common symptoms parents may notice include:
Parents may also notice their child makes self-critical comments like, “I’m worthless, no one likes me, you hate me,” and others.
