Helping Children Deal with Stress
Stress is a hot topic these days. We talk about how it affects our own well-being, but we also need to consider how stress can affect young children’s behavior, learning, and development.
Understanding how our bodies respond to stress enables us to recognize it in young children, provide responsive care to buffer stress, and help children cope with it.
If we want our children to be able to overcome adversity and view challenges as opportunities for growth and innovation, we need to help them become resilient.
