But most parents are in the dark about what causes stress in their kids--and even fewer know how to help. Now, Dr. Georgia Witkin, author of The Female Stress Syndrome and The Male Stress Syndrome, offers much needed assistance for anyone coping with the increasing problem of "kidstress." Having asked 800 boys and girls to name the biggest stressors in their lives, Dr. Witkin reveals their often surprising answers. She addresses the symptoms of stress and shows how to tell if a child is "overloaded." And she lays out effective strategies for helping kids help themselves. A much needed resource for anyone battling the symptoms of kidstress, here are the most effective strategies parents can teach their kids for managing the pressures of school, family, peers, the world--everything.
