This webpage includes information about stress in children, symptoms to spot the signs, a short animation and tips for reducing child stress.
Parenting NI have produced an information page to help teachers, parents and carers better understand stress in children and ways in which they might be able to reduce it.
The page includes a list of physical and emotional/behavioural symptoms that might help adults spot the signs of stress. They have also created a short animation to watch together to help the child understand the impact of stress on their bodies and some ideas for dealing with it. There is also a list of various tips on how to help a child manage stress.
