Signs of Social Anxiety Disorder in Teens
You may notice physical symptoms in your child such as trembling, sweating, a fast heart rate, or stomach problems when in social situations.
Teens with social anxiety may put themselves down frequently. They can say things such as, "I'm not good enough" or "Everybody is going to laugh at me."
CHANGES IN INTERESTS
Since many activities require social interaction, teenagers may suddenly lose interest in activities that they used to enjoy like sports or clubs.
AVOIDING SOCIAL SITUATIONS
Your teen may start skipping after school activities, declining invitations to hang out with friends, or simply not want to leave the house.
FEAR OF EMBARRASSMENT
Your teen may be afraid of doing anything that could embarrass them. They may worry about social situations for days or weeks beforehand.
