Teenagers: 14-18 Year Olds - Stress Management
Stress Management for Teenager.
Stress is a normal response that everybody feels
from time to time. Some stress is helpful because it motivates us. Stress is
bad when it interferes with daily activities, relationships and health.
Children and teens notice and react to stress in their family and also experience
their own stress. It is important to recognize stress in children and teens and
help them with healthy coping strategies. The strategies they learn often stay
with them into adulthood.
Generally, anything that may cause children fear and
anxiety can cause stress. This can include being away from home, starting a new
school or moving to a new location, being separated from parents or caregivers,
worrying about school and getting along with others, worrying about their
changing bodies, and worrying about the future.
