Does Basic Temperament Play a Role in Panic Attacks?

Basic Temperament

Researchers have found that the basic temperament of young people may play a role in some anxiety disorders. For example, some children tend to be very shy and restrained in unfamiliar situations, a possible sign that they are at risk for developing panic disorder. Research in this area is complex, however, because children's fears often change as they age.
 
Researchers also suggest watching for signs of anxiety disorders when children are between the ages of 6 and 8. During this time, children generally grow less afraid of the dark and imaginary creatures, and become more anxious about school performance and social relationships. An excessive amount of anxiety in children this age may be a warning sign for the development of anxiety disorders later in life.
