Trastornos de la Ansiedad

Es normal que los niños y adolescentes desarrollen ciertos miedos y experimenten cierta anticipación temerosa de los problemas (ansiedad) durante el curso de su desarrollo. Con el tiempo, los miedos normales desaparecen cuando los niños aprenden más acerca de qué esperar del entorno y de las relaciones con los demás. Cuando sus miedos no se disipan y comienzan a interferir con la vida y las actividades diarias del niño o del adolescente, puede ser signo de un trastorno de la ansiedad, y los padres deben consultar con un médico de inmediato.

Los desórdenes de la ansiedad son los problemas de salud mentales más comunes que ocurren en niños y adolescentes.  Tanto como 13 por ciento de niños entre las edades de 9 y 17 años tiene un desorden de la ansiedad.
