Stress is part of everyone’s almost daily life. If your child is experiencing stress, it simply means that the demands of the current situation are not matching what he/she is reasonably able to handle at this time.
The two responses to stress are “flight” or “fight”. If your child is battling you at every turn, then they may be in “fight” mode. If your child is withdrawn and isolating themselves, they may be in “flight” mode. Although stress is normal, chronic stress can result in meltdowns, sleep disturbance, cognitive impairment such as memory loss, poor concentration and focus. Your child’s academic performance may begin to suffer and the tension at home may be causing you to feel like you are “walking on eggshells.”
