Stress

Stress doesn’t just happen to be an emotional roller coaster for adults; it can happen for kids as well. Their stressors may be different; but in a way they are the same. Think of when you were in school; there were times you thought you were more prepared than you actually were. Now come back from living in the past and come to the present and future-bullying is more common in schools than it was taking a buddy to go to the bathroom.

Yes, when we as adults get stressed out we want to be alone (usually) or scream! But how do kids handle their stress? Do they take it out on you as the parent; their sibling; not doing well on a test because of anxiety? Helping children to handle stress is important so they learn how to deal with stress when they grow up.

Here is an article from Healthychildren.org on Helping Children Handle Stress.
