Children and stress Management

 Stress is an inevitable part of life. Human beings experience stress early, even before they are born. A certain amount of stress is normal and necessary for survival. Stress helps children develop the skills they need to cope with and adapt to new and potentially threatening situations throughout life. Support from parents and/or other concerned caregivers are necessary for children to learn how to respond to stress in a physically and emotionally healthy manner.

Players in Education Sector
Any human of any age is actually susceptible to stress, so children are not uniquely prone to it. They're just as likely as any of us to become stressed. There's no specific age where you'd start noticing this or seeing this. The symptoms of stress are pretty much the same for kids and adults. And things to watch for would be changes in mood or changes in behaviour, low mood, anxiety, lack of interest in things that the child use to enjoy and trouble sleeping, trouble eating, trouble doing the things they usually do pretty well. Most people figure that stress is something that affects adults only, but these days, with all the pressures put on children, they can suffer from it as well. Stress in children can have some very negative effects and if it continues for a long while, it can be detrimental to a child's health and development.

Tolerable stress refers to adverse experiences that are more intense but still relatively short-lived. Examples include the death of a loved one, a natural disaster, a frightening accident, and family disruptions such as separation or divorce. If a child has the support of a caring adult, tolerable stress can usually be overcome. Stress is most often seen as an overt physical reaction: crying, sweating palms, running away, aggressive or defensive outbursts, rocking and self-comforting behaviours, headaches and stomach-aches, nervous fine motor behaviours etc. the first and foremost change should come from the side of parent who understand child more than anyone else in this world. Other than parents schools can play a major role in this as children rely more on teachers and friends. It is the responsibility of every best Hyderabad school and teachers to lighten the study stress and other mental stress of a child. If they all work collectively to pacify the stress and burden in the mind of a child, then there is a possibility where we can hope for a stress free generation.
