According to the National Institute of Mental Health,
A child who sees a scary movie and then has trouble falling asleep or has a similar temporary fear can be reassured and comforted. But that is not enough to help a child with an anxiety disorder get past his or her fear and anxiety.
Anxiety disorders affect one in eight children. Research shows that untreated children with anxiety disorders are at higher risk to perform poorly in school, miss out on important social experiences, and engage in substance abuse.
Anxiety disorders also often co-occur with other disorders such as depression, eating disorders, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
With treatment and support, your child can learn how to successfully manage the symptoms of an anxiety disorder and live a normal childhood.
Childhood anxiety has become more common in the US in recent years. Today over 5.9% of children between the ages of 13 to 18 are diagnosed with severe anxiety.
What can you do if you believe that your child has an anxiety disorder?
The most important thing you can do for your child is stay calm. Often anxiety disorders run in the family. If you have suffered from anxiety yourself your child is more likely to develop it as well. If you get anxious when your child is it will lead to a more stressful situation for him and he will have a harder time calming down. Praise your child when she does something positive. Don’t punish mistakes and try to maintain a routine. If your child’s anxiety gets overwhelming or causes problems within your family make sure you get a proper diagnosis and know that there are natural treatments that you can try at home.

What are customers saying about K-OK Kiddie Calmer?
“My 5 year old daughter is a naturally timid child always clinging to my skirts. When she started pre–school her teacher said that she was not settling in because she was shy and cried easily. I did not want to give her any strong medication, but nothing I did helped her. My sister told me about K–OK Kiddie Calmer and I liked the idea of something natural. Although I think she will always be shy, she is playing with the other children and seems happy to join in with other kids at school now.”
– Phoebe, USA
