Stress is a normal part of everyday life for children and adults. It helps to motivate us and adds a postive challenge to life. However, too much stress can be counter-productive and overwhelming. Stress among chlidren is estimated to have increased 45% over the past 30 years. The good news is that building emotional health and resilliency can help children concentrate, learn,interact more successfully and deal with other stressors they may face intheir lives (Psychology Foundation of Canada). 

"The signs and symptoms of stress can often be seen in challenging behaviours. Children may be reprimanded for actions that are really stress reactions, rather than intentional misbehaviour or poor cognitive ability." Lantieri, L. 2008.
