As adults, we know what it’s like to be stressed out! But we may not realize that children are also showing the physical and emotional signs of stress in increasing numbers.
This session offers practical examples of stressors in kids’ lives and the warning signs for recognizing stress in kids. We discuss stress releasing activities and ways to observe and lower stress in ourselves. Most importantly, you’ll learn valuable skills for assisting children in the management of their schedules, feelings, choices and tensions. Research indicates that when parents know how to raise resilient kids, those kids are at lower risk for a host of teen difficulties, get sick less often, and do better in school.
