It is the intention of all families to provide a loving and supportive environment for children. There are times when despite the best intentions child may develop a level of anxiety which requires additional support.
Children may show signs of above normal fear and worry, and there may be changes in a child's behaviour, sleep, eating, or mood.
If there are any concerns for a child of this nature it is highly recommended that medical advise is sought as early as possible.
