Helping Your Child Cope With Stress

In counseling students have been learning about various coping strategies for dealing with stress and anxiety.  It is important for students to learn healthy ways for dealing with strong emotions.  When a student is experiencing a strong emotion associated with stress and anxiety, prompt them to use one of their coping strategies.   Learning to use their coping strategy takes time and practice. Parents can help their child by practicing these strategies at home.  Here are some techniques that might help in restoring emotional balance.

      Deep Breathing: 

Pretend your belly is like a balloon. Breathe in and make the balloon bigger, then breathe out and make the balloon shrink.

       Create a Relaxation Kit:

Fill a box with relaxing activities chosen by your child and create a relaxation space somewhere in your home.  This can include music, coloring pages, clay, squishy or fidget toy, kinetic sand, and books.

Tips On Helping Your Child Deal With Stress

Posted by tba10146 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on January 3, 2018

1.) Tell your child that it is okay to be imperfect.

Often we feel that it is necessary for our children to succeed in sports, school, and performance situations.  School becomes driven by grades, not by enjoyment of learning.  It is important to encourage your child to work hard but equally important to accept and embrace your child’s mistakes and imperfections.

2.) Focus on the positives.

Many times anxious and stressed children can get lost in negative thoughts and self-criticism. They may focus on how the glass is half empty instead of half-full and worry about future events. The more that you are able to focus on your child’s positive attributes and the good aspects of a situation, the more that it will remind your child to focus on the positives.

3.) Schedule relaxing activities.

Children need time to relax and be kids.  It is important to ensure that your child engages in play purely for the sake of fun. This may include scheduling time each day for your child to play with toys, play a game, play a sport (without it being competitive), doing yoga, paint, have a tea party, put on a play, or just be silly.

4.) Practice relaxation exercises with your child.

Sometimes really basic relaxation exercises are necessary to help your child to reduce their stress and anxiety. This might mean telling your child to take a few slow, deep breaths (and you taking a few slow breaths with your child so your child can match your pace). Or it might mean asking your child to image him or herself somewhere relaxing, like the beach or relaxing in a backyard by a pool.  Ask your child to close his/her eyes and imagine the sounds, smells, and sensations associated with the image

5.) Stay calm. 

Children look to their parents to determine how to react in situations.  If you are anxious, your child will pick up on that anxiety and experience an increase in his/her own anxiety.  So when you want to reduce your child’s anxiety, you must manage your own anxiety. This may mean deliberately slowing down your own speech, taking a few deep breaths to relax, and working to ensure that your facial expression conveys that you are calm.
