  • Ask the Expert: My Son is Too Stressed - Advice for Parents
    related to stress and let him know that everyone experiences stress and different people respond differently Discuss specific behaviors you ve noticed or situations in which your teen seems to be under a lot of pressure Empathize with your teen about the fact that you have also experienced stressful situations If you ve benefitted from having a positive outlet and someone to talk to mention that too Talk specifically about your own reactions to stress and the ways you ve tried to improve your response Invite your teen to share his thoughts about what is causing him the most stress and how he tries to manage his stress Ask open ended questions about things you could do to be supportive of him Often children and teenagers cope with stress in ways that are similar to how they ve seen their parents cope with stress Think about how you can take stressful opportunities to model positive coping strategies to your teen without lecturing about how he should cope One strategy is to try to engage in some positive self talk in front of your teen the next time you encounter a stressful situation The situation could be as simple as being stuck in traffic or feeling overwhelmed with an event at home In these moments say to yourself in front of your teen I am feeling really stressed out now but there is nothing I can do to change this situation I just have to try to stay calm until this moment passes Or if you are in a situation in which you do have control engage in active problem solving in front of your teen The purpose of these approaches is to encourage open dialogue and create a relationship in which your teen feels safe expressing and exploring his feelings
