My 6-year-old son is afraid to attend exams.He always comes up with lame excuses that he is suffering from a headache or stomach ache so that he doesn't want to go to school. Yesterday his class teacher phoned me and told me that he hadn't written any of the class tests and he is always absent during examinations. I discussed this with my friend and she told me that he might be suffering from some anxiety disorders. I did a lot of reading about it and even googled to know more about this disorder. Has anybody dealt with anything similar and how did you handle it?
How can I help my son with anxiety? Any advice or feedback are greatly appreciated. My colleague suggested taking him to a clinic in Toronto that deals with anxiety disorder treatment. How is anxiety disorder treated? Is there anything to be worried? Please share your valuable replies. Thanking you in advance.
