Health Tip: Is Your Child Overloaded?

Everyone is under some stress. But too much stress can impair your child’s well-being and emotional health.

The American Academy of Pediatrics mentions these warning signs that your child is under too much stress:

  • If there are physical pains, such as stomach aches or headaches.
  • If the child appears agitated, restless and tired.
  • If the child seems depressed, but is unwilling to talk about his or her feelings.
  • If the child behaves irritably or negatively, or lacks excitement about daily activities.
  • If the child chooses to stay home, rather than participate in activities once enjoyed.
  • If the child’s grades decline.
  • If the child shows behavioral changes, such as lying or stealing, becoming forgetful, refusing your requests or depending on you more than usual.
