3 1/2 year old Anxiety and Other Issues

Dear Dr. Laura,
My 3.5 year old son seems to have some trouble in a couple of areas. He has a lot of anxiety and fear as well as sleeping and eating problems.

I am a SAHM, he doesn't go to preschool or daycare. I never leave him with other people to take care of. There is no one who is suffering that he's aware of at all or any tragedies. We're a pretty balanced, happy family, and this is why I can't figure out what's the issue.
