Dealing with Children's Feelings

Children experience the same feelings as adults, but they may be more intense and children may have difficulty expressing their feelings in words.  Their fear, anxiety or anger may be expressed in changes in behaviour.  They may have nightmares or trouble eating or sleeping.

These responses are normal reactions to stress.

Do not hesitate to see your doctor for help in dealing with these feelings especially if they go on for a long time.
