Children grappling with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) confront distinct challenges that differ from those encountered by adults. Expressing their emotions and apprehensions can be notably difficult for children, often resulting in the emergence of physical symptoms such as stomach aches or headaches. Excessive worry about various aspects of their lives, including academic performance, friendships, and family relationships, is a common experience for children with GAD, significantly impacting their overall well-being and development.
