10 Sources of Stress for Kids/Teens


Hi Parents- I thought you'd appreciate seeing this "Top Ten" list I came across courtesy of the Mind/Body Medical Institute. Remember: events don't have to be negative to be stressful. The key component to stress is change. Here's the list:  


 1.  Parent(s) having problems.

 2. Fight with a friend or sibling.

 3. Taking a test.

 4. Wondering if someone thinks you're attractive (teens especially).

 5. Not having enough privacy.

 6. Birth of a brother or sister.

 7. Moving to a new school.

 8. Re-marriage of a parent.

 9. Not having enough money.

10. A teacher who doesn't like you.


Kids & teens today are faced with unique challenges, unheard of in past generations . If you have a concern about your son/daughter you'd like to discuss with a professional, I want to hear from you. You may send me an email with your question or you may call for a cost-free, ten minute phone consultation. I respond to all emails & calls within 48 hours :)
