An anxiety log can help you spot patterns in your child’s behavior. Then you may find it easier to choose calming strategies that work. Tracking signs of anxiety in your young child or signs of anxiety in your tween or teen can also help you figure out if what you’re seeing is typical anxiety or an anxiety problem.
