Effect of Parent - Child Relationship on Child's Anxiety
Abstract: 7.4% of children between the age of 3 - 17 have been diagnosed with anxiety. Psychological problems like anxiety and depression are quite prevalent in children. There can be many causes for this to happen, it can be anxiety due to schoolwork, social relationships, environmental stressors and the relationship of the child with his family especially parents. This paper aims to study the relationship of child with their parent and the impact it has on the anxiety levels. The paper analyzed over 90 research papers related to factors influencing child?s anxiety levels. A PCR can either be positive - when parents spend enough time with the child and encourage them in every field - or negative - when there are communication gaps between the children and the parents or when there is frustration amongst the parents themselves. The status of the Parent - Child relationship influences the child accordingly. A child is more optimistic and looks forward to life when he gets a positive response from the parents. Whereas, a child may show negative traits, such as violence, when he/she feels neglected by the parents. The children interact the most with their parents.
