Child and Teen Stress Directory

Stress can take a toll on your child's emotional and physical health. It might be caused by too many activities, trouble at school, lack of sleep, or any number of other things. Because it can affect their overall health and well-being, stress should be managed as much as possible. Counseling, family talks, or even just taking time to relax can help. Find out more about stress, kids, and teens here.
