RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- A physician at The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood is taking questions from parents via Facebook through Friday, Nov. 18, about anxiety and stress in children.
Kai-Ping Wang, M.D., Medical Director of Pediatric Psychiatry, Valley Medical Group, will lead the Q&A on anxiety in young children, tweens and teens.
While some amount of anxiety is normal and can even be motivating, anxiety that's too strong or happens a lot can become overwhelming. It can interfere with a child's ability to get things done and, in severe cases, can start taking over the good and enjoyable parts of life.
Do you have an anxious child? Does he or she show excessive fear, nervousness or shyness and even avoid certain places and activities? If you have questions join the conversation on Facebook with Dr. Wang. Click here to visit the Facebook page dedicated to the discussion.
