ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION: RECOGNIZING THE EARLY WARNING SIGNS


It is not unusual for young children to sometimes feel sad, afraid, or shy. So, how do you know if your child is experiencing anxiety or depression? If s/he tends to avoid social contacts and withdraws from unfamiliar situations, your child might be already showing you some signs of inner emotional distress.

Although most feeding problems are mild and short-lived, young children tend to react negatively to parents who pressure them to change their unwanted feeding habits. So, what can be done to prevent this from contributing to feeding problems? 
You may want to start by eating healthy nutritious food to model a balanced diet.

For more information on EATING BEHAVIOUR, a topic recently updated by Myles Faith, PhD, read the experts’ texts and the synthesis.
