Separation anxiety disorder is a common childhood anxiety disorder that has many causes. Infants, children, older kids and adults can suffer from symptoms of separation anxiety disorder. Common separation anxiety treatment methods include therapy and medications. Factors that contribute to how quickly or successfully a child moves past separation anxiety by preschool age include:

  • how well the parent and child reunite,
  • the skills the child and adult have at coping with the separation, and
  • how well the adult responds to the infant's separation issues.
For example, children of anxious parents tend to be anxious children.
