More kids than ever feel worried, stressed out, and anxious every day. Their parents and teachers may not know-because kids don't want to talk about it, or they don't know how to put their worries into words. Their "secret stress" surfaces as stomachaches, headaches, fatigue, trouble sleeping, loss of appetite, and an inability to concentrate. These and other stress-related symptoms can have a negative effect on school performance, family life, and friendships. Upbeat, positive, fact-filled, and friendly, this is the book on stress for kids and young adolescents.
