Stress Management

Expand Image

Just like adults, difficult, anxiety provoking situations can add stress to a child's life. There are many ways you can help your child cope with stressful situations, including

  • Practice visualizations (take a pretend field trip to the relaxing beach or a peaceful meadow)
  • Listen to calming music
  • Get lots of rest
  • Eat healthy foods
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Use positive self-talk (I can...)
  • Think positive thoughts
  • Focus on something good that happened that day
