Welcome to Stress 101
Today, we'll be learning about stress
and its effects on high school students.
Stress is one of the strongest obstacles that high school teens face every day.
“Almost 40 percent of parents say their high schooler is experiencing a lot of stress from school”
According to Patti Neighmond,
This proves very dangerous in the future since stress can often cause students to perform poorly in school thus limiting their potential.
Stress can cause symptoms of psychopathy, reduced academic functioning and depression
Stress compels students to "fit in" with everyone and to have a place on the high school hierarchy.
When students don't fit in, this causes them to harbor insecurities about both themselves and how their futures will turn out
