Stress is not an exclusive adult malady. Children can be under heavy stress too because of school, homework, home life, and friends. Here’s what you can do to help them manage stress.

You Can Help Your Stressed-Out Child

As adults, we often struggle to manage stress. For children, it’s even worse. We know when we’re stressed, but children usually don’t. Stressed children are moodier, irritable, have low self-esteem, and cry more often. They can also have frequent stomachaches, headaches, insomnia, and different eating habits. If school is their main stressor, their anxiety can get so high that they might avoid going to class. Sound familiar? If your child is stressed, here’s how you can help them.
  • Don’t overschedule: After school activities can be great for learning, but in excess, they can raise your child’s stress levels. Don’t overschedule their afternoons. Let your youngster rest and have some free time.
  • Let them sleep: If your child is not sleeping correctly they might be more irritable, moody, and their ability to handle stress might be non-existent. Sleep is imperative for children. Make sure your child rests enough so they can calmly manage all their activities.
  • Talk and listen: If you think your child is stressed or having trouble at school, talk to them and listen. Ask about their day and listen to what they say without criticizing them or telling them what to do.
  • Don’t criticize: No one likes to hear criticism and complaints. Try to avoid doing that in front of your child, even if you’re not talking about them. Criticism can make them feel fearful and anxious.
  • Teach them to accept mistakes: We often pressure our children to do better so they feel like they aren’t allowed to make mistakes. Teach them that mistakes are normal and that everyone makes them. Mistakes are a part of learning, and no one expects them to be perfect.
