Phobias typically develop early in life. They may be triggered by experiences, but also tend to run in families. So children whose parents have a phobia are about THREE TIMES as likely to develop a similar phobia, than where there is no family history. Phobias are THE MOST common anxiety disorder among women overall, and the SECOND-MOST common anxiety disorder among men over 25. For people who suffer from a phobia, the effects can be life altering.
