During the teenage years, stress is not really a surprise as this is quite natural. In fact, it is the most common mental disorders in the world. This is because teenagers are usually the ones who are more exposed to difficult decisions, soaring emotions and high levels of stress. To make it a bit simpler, teenager life is like a soap opera where it is expected that there would be a lot of highs and lows, unexplained silent treatments and dramatic outbursts.
There are many common anxiety disorders that any teenager can have. One of the six disorders is the social anxiety disorder also known as social phobia. You will notice that a teen is suffering from this disorder when he or she is uncomfortable in social settings, to the point that he or she is being incredible overwhelmed by it. The common symptoms of this disorder are blushing, sweating profusely and difficulty speaking. With the help of an effective teen anxiety program, you can help your child in managing the anxiety.
The second of which is the panic disorder wherein a teenager feels an impending doom, nauseous, sweaty and/or physically feeling chilled. This usually happens for about ten minutes and it can even happen while the teenager is asleep.
Another kind of teen anxiety disorder is the obsessive-compulsive disorder wherein he or she has constant thoughts which compel him or her to do things. The teen feels like he or she needs to control over something by doing the same rituals and following a pattern. For example, he or she will keep on checking things, counting things and/or touching things.
