How To Process Stress With Kids. . . A Helpful Video and Free Download. . .

time-coverLast week Time Magazine put it all out there on their cover. They decided to address the very real, destructive, and sometime deadly problem of teen stress, anxiety, and depression. It’s a big deal, for sure. Consequently, we need to be learning, discussing, preventing, and addressing the issue. What, if anything, are you already doing?

Shortly after encountering the Time story, I was reminded of the music video for the Twenty-One Pilots song, “Stressed Out.” Because it’s a great catalyst for popping the lid on discussions about stress and anxiety with kids, I decided to run it through our 3(D) media evaluation process we use and teach here at CPYU. Today, we posted our 3(D) discussion guide on “Stressed Out” and it’s available as a free download. Give it a read and then use it with students, parents, youth ministry staff, etc. This is the kind of tool we love passing on to you all. And for you youth workers. . . this can form the content for this week’s youth group meeting.

  1. Unfortunately almost one in five faced with teenage depression. It is according to statistics https://www.teenhelp.com/teen-depression/teen-depression-statistics/ the true figures are higher. Of course, we as adults become ashamed of it and understand that we are so much concerned by such minor issues.
    But this is a difficult period and it’s really important that parents understand. But the greatest danger is that teenagers do not always tell parents about their emotions. I have a teenage daughter and I know that is important to talk with your child and make clear that you are always on his or her side.
    Of course, you can always monitor the symptoms https://www.helpguide.org/articles/depression/teen-depression-signs-help.htm but the best way is to be a friend to your child. ‘Stress out’ song I also associate with this difficult period for teens but only because my daughter love them. When Twenty One Pilots tour http://livetourtickets.com/twenty-one-pilots-tickets/ starts, we taking tickets for her and her friends and all together go to their concert.
