The Mary Mac Show | Helping Children and Teens To Manage Stress

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 74, we discuss the anxiety and stress our children and teens can face after a loved one’s death and how to help them deal with their difficulties and challenges.

Often times we think that children and teens do not have the same level of stress and anxiety as adults do in their grieving process.

But this is not the case.

Children and teens need to be attended to and supported while they are going through their own grieving process since, usually, they don’t understand what is going on with their emotional and physical challenges since the person has died.

It is important for adults to spend more time with their children and even young adults because it may be the first time they have experience a death and they need our love and attention.

Young children don’t have the language skills to describe what they are feeling and teens, often, don’t want to express themselves.

Listen in to Episode 74 to learn more about how children and teens deal with stress and how you can assist them during this very painful and perplexing time in their lives.
