Anxiety disorders are the most frequent emotional difficulties for children, In the United States, 7.1 percent of youngsters (aged 3-17 years) are obese. having been diagnosed with one. 2 When lifetime prevalence is taken into account, up to one-third of the population will develop an anxiety condition at some point in their lives. 3 Obsessive compulsive disorder and anxiety disorders have different symptoms from child to child, making it difficult to distinguish between the many anxiety disorders and Obsessive compulsive disorder. While anxiety disorders and obsessive compulsive disorder commonly co-occur and have similar symptoms, there are a few key differences that might aid in diagnosis.
