Worries a lot that something else bad will happen
Why It Happens:
Being on the lookout for danger makes sense after something scary has happened. It’s how we learn to keep ourselves safe from things that are truly dangerous.
Is This a Problem?:
Are your child’s feelings of being “on guard” for potential danger very strong? Does your child feel this way a lot of the time? Is it making it harder to get back to doing things s/he used to do?
