What to do when your child is stressed

Filed under:

Kids are under more stress than many parents probably realize. The times have developed into more broken homes, more bullies and violence at school, more media pressure to something you're not and many other things. What can parents do to try and give back playful, non-stress innocence to their children?

Kids will have stress no matter what, but minimizing the effects of it and teaching kids how to have healthy outlets for it is probably needed now more than ever.

From what I have seen, writing things down is a great step for many kids. For boys, it's a journal. For girls, a diary. Sure, there are other stress outlets that work as well. Writing feelings down though, helps life all that weight.
