Know the signs
You know your child the best. You will probably be the first one to notice any changes in your child’s behaviour. As soon as you notice any changes, start keeping a diary.
The changes to look out for:
— Refusal or reluctance to go to school
— Requests for you to drive them instead of catching the bus
— Complaints of stomach aches or headaches (could be a sign of anxiety)
— Sleeping in or wetting the bed
— A fall in the child’s grades or reports from the teacher that you child is withdrawing from some activities.
While these could be an indication of other issues that could be causing the child anxiety, make sure that you explore the issue of bullying with your child. Full story.
