Stress among children is estimated to have increased by 45% over the past 30 years. Research tells us that stress has a negative impact on children’s relationships and ability to learn, and has a profound effect on children’s physical, emotional and mental health. The good news is that building emotional health and resiliency can help children concentrate, learn, interact more successfully and deal with other stressors they may face in their lives.
Developed by The Psychology Foundation of Canada, the Kids Have Stress Too! program helps parents, caregivers and educators understand childhood stress and how to provide children with the tools to deal with stress effectively. The program includes a range of resources designed for parents, those who work with young children in early learning settings, and for classrooms.
- Child Growth and Development
- Child Health and Wellbeing
- Curriculum/Program Development
- Early Care and Education
- Special Needs
Suitable for child care providers of children 2 years of age and up.
