How do we know if kids are stressed?

That's a pretty hard sort of thing. Cos' you see we're all this busy and don't have time to care for kids. What are the things we must look out for? :nunchuk:

When one of my children is stressed, one thing I realise is he will tell me that he feels 'sick' and does not want to go to school (even though he looks fine!).

I still take him to get an MC and rest at home. These kids need a break sometimes and I think the competition really gets to them.

Hmmm.....I have not really seen my son being stressed yet...either I'm not giving him enough work or I'm too insensitive and bo-chap to notice? :skeptical:
Guess like the comments from his teachers.....he remains calm even under stressful situation.....so I hope I will be able to detect if he ever gets too stressed.


As for DD.....when she first transferred school and the workload was heavier and tougher, she would tear easily. She was more tired and need to sleep earlier too (probably mentally exhausted) and I found 1 strand of white hair :sweat: Well, now that she is coping, everything back to normal......

Mine will anyhow throw tantrums. Better to release than keep inside.
At least the tantrum blows over quickly.
