Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Headaches in Children

Stress, anxiety, and depression can all cause headaches.

Talk to your child and to your doctor about ways to make him or her feel better, such as cutting back on activities, talking to teachers about strategies or extra help, or counseling.

If the headaches continue, or if your child continues to show signs of stress, anxiety, or depression despite your efforts, make sure your doctor is aware so that you can work together to figure out what's going on and help your child.
