If your child is anxious, you might notice they’re more restless or irritable than usual. They may seem tense or have trouble sleeping. Or they may seem very tired or struggle to concentrate.
It’s normal to feel anxious about a big change or stressful event, such as starting school, moving home or exams. However, even everyday things can cause anxious thoughts from time to time.
Sometimes feeling scared or worried can make young people act out. This can look like attention seeking, but may be their way of asking for reassurance or help.
