Child perfectionism symptoms

Child perfectionism symptoms
Symptoms of perfectionism in children may vary, but some common signs to look for include:
  1. An excessively high level of concern with making mistakes or not meeting high standards
  2. Extreme difficulty completing tasks or projects because they feel they must be perfect
  3. Persistent worry or anxiety about not meeting expectations
  4. Difficulty relaxing or engaging in leisure activities because they feel they should be working or achieving something
  5. Extreme frustration or disappointment when they don’t meet their own or others’ high standards
  6. Difficulty making decisions because they worry about making the wrong choice
  7. Extreme self-criticism or criticism of others
  8. Difficulty accepting compliments or positive feedback

It’s important to note that not all children who exhibit these behaviors will necessarily have perfectionism, and the presence of some of these symptoms does not necessarily mean that a child has a perfectionism disorder. 

If you are concerned about your child’s perfectionism, it may be helpful to seek support from a mental health professional. 

They can help you understand your child’s specific needs and provide guidance on how to best support them.
