Anxiety is a normal part of childhood, and every child goes through phases. A phase is temporary and usually harmless. But children who suffer from an anxiety disorder experience fear, nervousness, and shyness, and they start to avoid places and activities. A child who sees a scary movie and then has trouble falling asleep or has a similar temporary fear can be reassured and comforted. But that is not enough to help a child with an anxiety disorder get past his or her fear and anxiety. Anxiety disorders affect one in eight children. Research shows that untreated children with anxiety disorders are at higher risk to perform poorly in school, miss out on important social experiences, and engage in substance abuse.

A new study from researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found that adolescents who spend more than three hours a day on social media are more likely to report high levels of internalizing behaviors compared to adolescents who do not use social media at all. The study, published online September 11 in JAMA Psychiatry , examined the time adolescents reported spending on social media and two types of behaviors that can be indicators of mental health problems: internalizing and externalizing. Internalizing can involve social withdrawal, difficulty coping with anxiety or depression or directing feelings inward. Externalizing can include aggression, acting out, disobeying or other observable behaviors. The study found the use of social media for any amount of time was associated with both a greater risk of reporting internalizing problems alone and concurrent symptoms of both internalizing and externalizing problems. The study found no significant association with social media use and externalizing problems alone.

American teenagers spend an "astounding" nine hours a day with digital technology, entertaining themselves with streaming video, listening to music and playing games, researchers reported Tuesday. And "tweens" aged 8 to 12 are spending six hours with media, the non-profit group Common Sense Media reports. That's is in addition to using digital gadgets for homework, the group reports in its five-year update on kids' use of media. The group surveyed 2, 8- to year-olds in February and March for the report, which it says represents children across the nation. Tweens 8- to year-olds use an average of about six hours' worth of entertainment media daily," the report reads. One worrying finding: kids are trying to multitask when they're doing homework and schoolwork and the evidence is strong that this just doesn't work, Steyer said. They simply can't," Steyer said.
