Counseling TidBits

Teens and stress seem to go hand in hand these days. Often times we view stress as a negative factor; however, stress can actually be beneficial and important to developing resiliency. Here are a few tips to help your child manage the stress of daily life:

  • Be a role model: Communicate openly and demonstrate healthy coping strategies for dealing with daily stressors.
  • Focus on the process, not the outcome: How hard a child tries is often more important than the grade they receive.
  • Get enough rest, eat well, and seek support: A healthy lifestyle can promote positive coping skills for daily stress.
