More on Stress in Kids

I found an online booklet about stress in kids from the Child Development and Family Science Parenting and Caregiving Department of North Dakota State University. Called How Am I?, the easy-to-read text (in large type) explains that stress can be good or bad; tells kids the physical symptoms they feel are normal simply by getting them to check off those they have; and lists actions kids can take to deal with stress.

The "case studies" given are too simplistic. I would think it would be more useful if situations of stressors were more advanced than simply "my sister didn't come out of the bathroom", but it does demonstrate how kids can analyze a situation, including: their response to it, the consequences of their response and what they might try next time to change the outcome.
