Has anyone experienced anxiety in their children? My 7 year old daughter recently started having pretty severe anxiety about sleeping in her room at night. She starts getting upset and just stews on it a while before bedtime. Then she starts talking about how much she loves me and how she’s afraid I’ll die. Most nights we get through it eventually but some nights I can’t get her to stay in her bed and she ends up in my bed for the night. What makes it worse is my husband refuses to believe it’s anxiety and thinks she’s just being manipulative to try to sleep with me. He works at night and has never really experienced it himself. I’m looking for a therapist for her to start with but if anyone has any suggestions or things that have worked for their children it would be greatly appreciated.
