Pediatricians are seeing epidemic-level numbers of children and teens with anxiety disorders and physical problems related to anxiety. 

I currently estimate that more than 25 percent of the problems I discuss with parents and children in a day are stress-related. Anxiety presents in so many ways in kids: school avoidance, sleep problems, headaches, panic attacks, depressed mood and stomach pains are only a few ways that kids can show their stress.

For over a decade, teachers, parents and pediatricians have been crying for help in this area. It is time for everyone to listen.
