Stress In Teens And What Could Be Triggering It

Parents! Did you know that not only can teens experience stress, but many teens suffer with stress levels that compare to adults?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The best way to understand how your teen processes stress is to engage in open communication. It’s important for parents to normalize the concept of stress and empower teens to utilize adaptive coping strategies! 💪⁣⁣
⁣⁣
𝐇𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝟔 𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐠𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐛𝐞 𝐜𝐚𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐝 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬: ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
1️⃣ 𝘈𝘤𝘢𝘥𝘦𝘮𝘪𝘤 𝘚𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘴 – Grades, test scores, applying to college; many teens worry about meeting academic demands, pleasing teachers/parents, and keeping up with their classmates. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
2️⃣ 𝘚𝘰𝘤𝘪𝘢𝘭 𝘚𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘴 – Bullying and instances of relational aggression are clear sources of stress in teens. Learning to manage healthy conflicts in romantic or platonic relationships; not to mention peer pressure, is difficult to navigate. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
3️⃣ 𝘍𝘢𝘮𝘪𝘭𝘺 𝘋𝘪𝘴𝘤𝘰𝘳𝘥 – Unrealistic expectations, marital problems, strained sibling relationships, illness in the family, and financial stress on the family can all trigger a spike in teen stress.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
4️⃣ 𝘞𝘰𝘳𝘭𝘥 𝘌𝘷𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴 – School shootings, acts of terrorism, and natural disasters trigger stress. Hearing bits and pieces of scary news, can leave teens wondering about their safety and the safety of their loved ones.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
5️⃣ 𝘛𝘳𝘢𝘶𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘤 𝘌𝘷𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴 – Death of a family member or friend, accidents, sickness, or enduring emotional/physical abuse can have a lasting impact on teen stress levels.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
6️⃣ 𝘚𝘪𝘨𝘯𝘪𝘧𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘯𝘵 𝘓𝘪𝘧𝘦 𝘊𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘨𝘦𝘴 – Like adults, teens experience stress due to significant life changes. Moving, starting a new school, and changes in the family (divorce and/or blended families) can trigger stress.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It is so important to pay attention to these behaviors within your kids! Do you think your child is stressed? Which trigger 1️⃣-6️⃣ is most likely causing it? Share with us below!👇
