Know when to get help for your child’s anxiety disorder
Children are naturally smarter than what adults give them credit for. It’s easy to think children are naturally shy because so many exhibit fearful behavior in new situations. That couldn’t be further from the truth. The average child is naturally curious, ambitious & constantly learning every day, whether they mean to or not. If your child exhibits an unnatural amount of fear or shyness on a daily basis, it’s possible they could be suffering from an anxiety disorder.
Is anxiety affecting my child’s school work?
Anxiety disorders affect roughly 32% of American children. The occasional shy tendency is natural in new situations, but persistent overwhelming fear is a sign of a severe anxiety disorder. Other signs of anxiety disorders in children & adolescents include:
- Inability to focus
- Fear of school
- Tantrums over homework
- Stomach aches
Is online school better for anxiety?
One of the biggest inhibiting factors of anxiety in children is how badly it affects their school experience. Whether they’re unable to focus in school, or too afraid to go to school at all, their grades will plummet the further their anxiety advances.
It might be tempting to pull your child out of their school to keep them safe from discomfort, but studies show that this is not the solution. The best thing for a child to do to beat anxiety is to receive treatment while continuing their education. Easier said than done if your child is enrolled in a brick and mortar school. eAchieve virtual school partners with your school district to make success available to every child with our FREE online learning program.
