Teens and stress

New results from the Stress in America survey conducted by the American Psychological Association, reported in USA Today, finds that stress reactions are developing early in teens and are most severe during the school term.  The high stress levels are placing teens at risk for physical and emotional problems as they age.  The coping skills used aren’t always the best either, suggesting that we, in the schools, have a major role to play in helping teens learn to manage the stress in their lives.
