Stress and Cortisol in Kids and Teens
The effects of stress can impact overall health and day-to-day activities. Stress is not just an issue that affects adults; infants, toddlers and teens can be equally affected by stress. In recent years, studies have been conducted that have proven that women react differently to stress than men. Because most of the stress studies performed were conducted on men, scientific exploration into the effects of stress on women was necessary to understand the full scope of the effects of stress. The same might be said for children.
Children undergo rapid stages of growth both in body and brain. Behavioral, psychological and social growth can have an impact on stress in infants, toddlers, young children and teenagers. These developmental stages are marked by different points of growth and hormones associated with stress. Because stress is an inevitable occurrence for children and adults it is important to think about ways to modulate stress.
