I had really bad GAD throughout puberty and my teen years. I can tell you that the best thing you can do is be supportive! My parents weren't understanding at all and acted like I was lieing about
it. They still act this way many years later and it's ridiculous.
Just let him know that you know just how he feels and maybe try to seek out therapy for him and you.
My daughter is only 2 years old, but I thought I'd respond anyway. Not sure if she will ever have my panic disorder... but I pray that she won't.
Just my two cents.
