Beating Stress

 During a crisis such as a flood, people often push through the emotion instead of dealing with the loss and stress of the immediate situation. During the early stages when those affected are recovering their belongings and their livestock or repairing damage, the adrenaline of the crisis allows them to keep busy on tasks toward recovery. That works for a while, but be aware that a tipping point can occur, where stress is too much to handle. Sometimes the smallest event (finding a broken keepsake or losing the truck keys) could set off an emotional outrage or emotional release.

Beating Stress: Challenges, Choices, Changes

Stress comes in many forms. There are normal and predictable stressors, such as a new job, getting married, or moving. There are sudden stressors such as a disaster, assault, or death. There is some stress that is simply irritating and other life stress that just continues to build up. The first step in managing stress it to understand stress in general, then consider how you react to your life stressors.

Ready for School? What Should Your Child Be Able to Do?

Every child develops at a different rate. The first five years are very important learning years because the brain is forming concepts that will last a lifetime. A preschooler’s brain grows so fast! Using the preschool years to prepare children for school is very important.
