When Anxiety Turns Into Phobia
Our children today are becoming more and more phobic as time has gone by, our children’s anxiety turns to fear. Those fears if left go, then turn into a phobia. A phobia is a child’s fear(s) which is extreme and persistent, usually irrational but very real to the child. Some phobias are pretty harmless and really do not need any type of treatment, but when this affects them socially and their academic functioning treatment is needed.
Your Child’s Symptoms
The symptoms of your child going through the severe emotional trauma from a phobia can be very severe, these children become very ill from their fear(s). They will experience both physical and emotional symptoms, these symptoms should be a sign your child is experiencing a severe phobia. When you notice a change in your child’s behavior, this is a red flag something serious is wrong with your child.
Most Common Child Phobias
All children have fears, especially in their pre-school years. When these fears become to the point the child is not emotionally happy, the child just does not feel healthy. Imagine how scary this would be for a child, very difficult to actually explain to a child what is going on inside of them. Most adults have major problems learning to cope with this type of health problem, so we can imagine how much more severe it would be for our child.

How To Help Our Children
This can be a very scary time for the child and also the parents, this is something the majority of parents are not prepared to handle. Most parents would never expect their child to be experiencing such an emotional problem at such a young age, many parents have not had to learn how to deal with this problem themselves. Many doctors tell the parents , you do not need to worry they will grow out of this when they are older. Actually, this is the worse advice a doctor could give a parent, you really need to face your child’s fears with them now.

What Is On My Mind
Please do not take your child’s symptoms lightly, if your child is more fearful than you feel is normal. Consider discussing this with your child, most children will be more than happy to share what is bothering them. My fears were not taken seriously when I was a child, as I grew older my fears become much more severe. Talking with your child regularly about how they are feeling is a very good routine, when your child is not feeling well there has to be a very good reason. I highly recommend children relaxation resources , also exposing your child to relaxation music at an early age is very healthy for them.
Children’s Anxiety Supplements
I am big on starting a child on natural anxiety supplements if they are experiencing anxiety symptoms, many anxiety related problems are due to a lack of the proper nutrients in our diets. My supplement has changed my life, I would not be here writing articles to help your children and you without my supplement. It did take me years to find the right supplement for me, but once you find the right supplement for you and your child you will know it was well worth the extra work.
