Children face different levels of stress mainly caused by pressures of schoolwork, social life, excessive screen time, family matters, and more.  It's important to help children be resilient. Instead of eliminating their stress, teaching them coping strategies is the perfect way of allowing them to go through life facing challenges with a positive outlook. If you are interested in learning some advice on how to help your child manage their stress, read this article that Strech-n-Grow has for you today. The best way to start helping children manage stress is by starting a conversation. Start by asking your child some open-ended questions to start getting an overall idea of what particular subjects cause your child to feel stressed. Some children can have a hard time opening up about what bothers them, so be patient. After identifying a specific situation that causes your child to be stress, start a conversation where you help them see another side to the situation. Instead of just seeing that a particular situation causes them stress, help them see what they can learn from the situation. Helping children understand that stress can be a motivator and that can help them learn more about themselves can have a very positive effect on how they experience stress. Finding activities that allow your child to release some of their stress is crucial. It's important for children to know there is something they can do that helps them feel better and calmer. Depending on the child, these activities can vary. Maybe your child enjoys dancing or playing sports, or maybe they enjoy painting and singing. Whatever it may be, encourage your child to find an outlet for their stress. For more advice on how to help your child manage their stress, get in contact with a professional at Stretch-n-Grow in Winston/Salem, NC. They offer a wide arrange of children's exercise classes as well as children's fitness programs that can allow your child to lower their stress levels. For more information, call (336) 287-1193 today!
