Your teen doesn't seem to be their usual confident, bubbly, and carefree self. As a parent, you just want to see that spark in them again. You notice they are nervous, worried, and overthink things. They are having problems fitting in and making good friends. You even hear them being hard on themselves or very critical. You’re concerned that they will miss out on experiences because of their worries and anxiety. They are losing sleep, seem tense, and are even irritable at times.
