at what point do children start to worry?

i was looking at my baby's eyes last night as he was falling asleep, and i just couldn't take my eyes off his wrinkle free smooth face. he is only 5 months old and there are no worry lines on his forehead. there are no creases around his eyes. just smooth, milky skin. my neice is 4 years old and she is the same way. i started to wonder...when do we start worrying? when does life start to "get" to us and we stress and fret over the littlest BIG things?? just interested in your thoughts... take care.

Well, we can start to release stress hormones pretty much as soon as our brains develop....we can definitly feel fear right away...I think that even very young babies can worry, to some extent, as long as they have had some kind of experience which leads them to be worried. My doc told me a few years ago that he is seeing more and more ulcers in children six and under because of stress from their parents splitting up.
