Because a large percentage of your child's time is spent in school, her anxiety will affect her school experience. Similarly, her experiences at school will also affect her anxiety. Children can have school-related anxiety for a number of reasons, and it can take some detective work to figure out the particulars of your child's concerns. Anticipatory anxiety and the avoidance that results can cause school troubles to spiral rapidly into unmanageability, and missed classes can create an overwhelming avalanche of catch-up. As such, it is important that you address anxiety about school as quickly and directly as possible.
