Helping Kids Cope With Stress

Mar 1, 2010

It’s tough being a kid these days. Issues that create stress for parents – losing a job or home to the tough economy, divorcing, or just having too much going on – can hit children even harder. Watch for signs that your child might be having trouble coping, such as:

  • Mood swings and/or acting out
  • Changes in eating habits or sleep patterns
  • Trouble completing schoolwork
  • Clinginess or spending a lot of time alone

Making time for your child every day and addressing his or her concerns are among the most important things you can do as a parent. If you are concerned that behavioral changes indicate a problem you can’t handle alone, NewBridge can help. Call toll-free at 888-746-9333.
