In brief: To truly answer,

I need more information about both the mother and the child.
But this sounds like you are concerned, so why not talk it over with your family doctor or a psychiatrist who can help you figure this out?

In brief: Parent anxiety

Well, the parent's anxiety will likely be communicated to the child, who may then become anxious himself/herself.
This parent should look into some mental health support before that happens.
