How Does Your Kid Deal With Stress?

by Tracy Jensen

This week, schools in our area are conducting their annual standardized tests. Such a crazy time for parents and kids! For many a tween or teen, these tests can cause a lot of stress, anxiety, and even boredom if they finish early.

Kids, believe it or not, face a lot of stressors: big games, dance or music recitals, schoolwork, and tests. How do your kids deal with their stress?

FIT Teen is collecting ideas from teens on relaxing and dealing with stress — in haiku form! Your teen could win 4 park passes to a Disney resort plus spending money. Just have your teen write a haiku — a poem with a format of 5-7-5 syllables — describing how they relax or deal with stress, and enter to win on the FIT Teen site.

Here is my haiku advice for kids taking tests this week:

Testing week is hard.
Try to rest, eat right, and breathe
For it will end soon!

Remember to encourage your kids to take it easy this week. And if they get creative with a haiku, send it in today – April 30 – for a chance to win. Good luck!
