    Stress Management: Helping Your Child With Stress


    Childhood isn't all fun and games. Even young children can feel worried and stressed.

    Stress can come from outside, such as family, friends, and school. It can also come from children themselves. Just like adults, children may expect too much of themselves and then feel stressed when they feel that they have failed.
