How early should we be concerned?

Post by Sushan »

This topic is about the November 2021 Philosophy Book of the Month, Natural Relief for Anxiety and Stress: A Practical Guide by Gustavo Kinrys, MD


The authors are discussing about how an adult should diagnose and treat his/her own anxiety.

But what about children who cannot apply this to themselves? And more dangerously many parents just ignore anxiety related issues of their children either thinking that they are normal for the age, or because they do not want to see their children as weaklings. But the end result of this ignorance can be a disaster.

What do you think? Should we stay till adulthood to be concerned about anxiety? How parents should be addressed regarding this issue?

It is my understanding that parents are unaware of their children's stress (due to their children's secrecy about it) rather than unconcerned about it.

They are children and their span of knowledge and understanding is less. It is more possible for them not to understand that they are suffering from anxiety rather than hiding it. I think parents should be more vigilant and catch it early as possible, and also intervene ASAP.

You misunderstood me, what kids commonly hide is the source of stress (not the stress itself) as well as suicidal thoughts. As far as what parents should do, that is limited by what they can do.

I am sorry for misunderstanding you. Yes, I agree. The children show that they are stressed. But it is different from how elders show their stress, and that is the reason for parents not identifying that their children are stressed. This is commonly seen in child abuse cases. The behaviour of such children is changed, but they almost never tell what they are undergoing. Since many parents are busy today they fail to identify subtle changes of their kids, and that prevent them from taking any intervention.
