It is very easy to brush off behavioural issues in children as tantrums or misbehaviour. Anxiety is one of the common behavioural problems that is often mislabeled and thus remains undiagnosed. Most of the time anxiety stems from something. the usual culprits are transitions of any kind, or changes in their routine.
For eg. you may notice a difference in your child behaviour from joining a new school or changing homes. It is fairly easy for adults to cope with these things but for kids, its isn’t.
There may be behavioural changes like bedwetting, irritation, cranky, clingy behaviour, inability to concentrate at school or in studies.
If these signs go unnoticed then the repercussions are huge and they are to be borne by both the parents and the child.
