I think this depends on the child. While I certainly felt anxiety during the baby stage and checked for breathing, when my four-year-old daughter was quietly playing by herself in her room, I wouldn’t worry. She would busy herself by building a castle with her blocks, flipping through the pages of her books or creating dialogue with her dolls.
