Identifying The Source of School Stress

Frustrated student feeling stress from school

Unfortunately, school stress is something all students experience. For adults, stress management comes with experience—the more life throws at us, the more we adapt. Most adults have learned mechanisms to cope with stress over the years! 

However, children handling stress presents challenges since their coping skills are not fully developed. Since school takes up a lot of space in your child’s life, ensuring that it is free from stressors is essential in making school less daunting.

Recognizing School Stressors

When children learn how to overcome challenges and setbacks, they become more resilient students. But, school stressors could be presenting your child with more than they can handle, which can have long-term negative effects on their mental health. Identifying what is causing your child stress at school and teaching them how to manage these stressors are the first steps toward being able to perform at their fullest potential!
