Typical signs that your little one could be suffering from increased levels of anxiety include:
Separation anxiety that does not settle after a while Ongoing nightmares
A startle response for no reason
Upset, clingy behaviour over an extended period of time Sleep disturbances Insistence that you stay with them
Other typical scenarios may include having problems settling with someone they know well, seeming fearful and apprehensive beyond the norm and being reluctant to try new things − even with you.
