Teens and stress

Teens and stress

(NAPSI)-The changes teens encounter during adolescence may create significant stress. Rather than share their feelings, many teens struggle on their own, often choosing unhealthy ways to cope.
Because stress affects a teen physically, mentally and emotionally, it is important to monitor a teen's behavior and intervene when appropriate. The experts at Eckerd Academy, who have more than 40 years of experience helping troubled teens, suggest watching for some warning signs:
* Headaches
* Nervousness
* Rashes
* Stomachaches
* Boredom
* Angry outbursts
* Nightmares
* Sadness or depression
* Fear
* Withdrawal
* Initiating confrontation.
Although one symptom may not be cause for concern, a pattern of these symptoms may indicate a problem. Teens who are preoccupied with problems may also become forgetful, careless and do poorly in school.
