How Common Is School Anxiety in Teens?

by

Standardized tests, college admissions requirements, and scholarship applications are all matters of major importance for today’s college-bound student. Competition to get into a good school is fierce, and many adolescents feel the pressure to earn top grades, ace their state tests, and balance their extracurricular activities and social life as well.

Some students are being urged to decide their future career path as early as age thirteen, a task that can easily stress out an adult!

It’s no wonder, then, that so many kids are complaining of school-induced anxiety. Some children and teenagers are becoming so anxious when faced with an exam that they are feeling the physical effects.

Nausea and stomach pain, shaking and perspiration can indicate an excess of anxiety. Some students also experience stress headaches.

An article from a clinical hypnotherapist describes how anxiety works and how it is treated. She also makes recommendations for how parents should guide their children through their anxiety and how to help keep them calm.

There
are so many pressures on kids these days. And we have taken away so
many of their stress-relieving outlets. Think how little time children
get to play outside nowadays. Most kids have their extra time taken up
by homework and tons of extracurricular activities. It is no wonder more
and more have anxiety problems.

The amount of homework seems like a lot to me too! I know and agree that academics are important, but so is time to let go. I think the criticality of play gets lost sometimes in the desire to “achieve” and “produce”.

Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.

It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that
“perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.

I must say you’ve done a very good job with this. In addition, the blog
loads extremely quick for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!

Old age will result to brittle nails and thickened foot pads.

Vegan diets are also being recommended for current cancer patients as well as to help prevent cancer, diabetes,
heart disease and high cholesterol. It is enough to
consume the right carbohydrates at the right times and to drink
plenty of water.
