Top 10 Sources of Stress for Kids

In addition to minor aggravations like running late or having a bad hair day, kids (like the rest of us) have to cope with major life events. These events don't have to be negative to be stressful. Remember: the key component to stress is change.

  1. Parent having problems.

  2. Fight with a friend or a sibling.

  3. Taking a test.

  4. Wondering if someone thinks you're attractive (teens especially).

  5. Not having enough privacy.

  6. Birth of a brother or sister.

  7. Moving to a new school.

  8. Re/marriage of a parent.

  9. Not having enough money.

  10. A teacher who doesn't like you.
