Discover Why Kids are Stressed

Stress: a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances.

CNN, posed a question a few days ago, are we, as a nation, making childhood too stressful for millions of kids?

Studies have shown that planning too many extracurricular activities for kids can stress out the whole family. From piano lessons, to basketball practice, then play rehearsal, parents have this notion that their children will miss out if they don’t participate in everything. This results in too many after school activities.

Are parents cramming their children into too many after-school activities without an eye toward what lessons they’ll learn about themselves?

Parents need to teach their kids to balance human doing with human being. Psychologist, Paula Bloom, states that children may not experience character-building if they’re spread thin, and on top of all their extra curriculars also have homework to do.

Children need to know they are not defined by what they do. As adults we forget that kids need time to play, experiment, rest and figure out who they are, to determine what they want. There isn’t a limit on what you and your family can handle when it comes to activities. For your family it may be 2 for another it may be 4. Whatever works for your family, make sure that you are listening to your children and making sure they aren’t feeling overwhelmed.
