Stress and Young Children

November 19th, 2009 Posted in Child Dev, Home Visiting Strategies

Many families we are working with are feeling the stress of the approaching holiday season, the continued economic downturn and the changes to the CA Early Start system.  But, how does stress exhibit itself in the young children that we work with?  Researchers suggest that children under the age of 6 are developmentally less capable of (1) thinking about an event in its entirety; (2) selecting from a menu of possible behaviors in response to any new, interesting, or anxiety-inducing event; (3) comprehending an event separate from their own feelings; and (4) modifying their physical reactions in response to change in stimuli (Allen & Marotz, 2003).  Check the following link to the Clearinghouse on Early Education and Parenting for information on stress and young children.


1- As a home visitor, what have you noticed/are noticing about how stress affects the families and children you work with?

2- How does this influence your work?

    Thank you for this article. Great post. I was wondering if maybe you could post an article about ways to deal with stress for children. I think it would be a pertinent article. Do you think that mindfulness is a good method to deal with stress in kid for example? If yes, how could we make kids practice mindfulness knowing that even adults have hard time with it. Thank you!
