CJAD Radio in Montreal, Canada interviewed Jeremy Schneider on a recent study about stress and children. Kim Fraser asked questions about if parents’ stress can affect children (which it certainly can), if we should share financial stress with our children (teach them about the value of money, without burdening them about monetary stress), and what are the signs a child is over-scheduled (for Jeremy’s full article, check out ParentCentral.ca).
Jeremy talked about how important it is for parents to manage our own stress for two main reasons.
- The better parents are able to manage our own stress, the less of an impact it has on our children
- The better parents are able to manage our own stress, the more we teach our children about managing theirs and give them the tools to do so.
