Helping Teens Manage Stress


Raise your hand if your teen is stressed. (Everyone’s hand is up, correct?) Kenny Rogers crooned that a gambler knows “when to hold ‘em” and “when to fold ‘em,” and you can give the same advice to your teen to manage their stress levels. They’ve got to know when to hold on and take long, calm breaths to destress and when to fold and exercise to relieve tension. Exercise releases those stress hormones, so throw on a pair of sneakers and join them on a run or crank up the volume and dance around the living room.

Smart thought, right? Keep snack time going with another bite of parenting advice, or sign up for our newsletter and get the next snack delivered to your inbox.
