Often, adults are not totally aware of the fact that children and adolescents deal with stress.  Either the adults totally ignore the child/adolescent when (s)he brings up what (s)he considers a stressor or adults minimize what the child says because it has no comparison to the stressors that adults experience.  However, stress is very real to children and adolescents.  They have not had the experience of adults when it comes to stress so they do not have a clue as to how to deal with the stress. To them, it is an insurmountable burden.  As adults, we have the opportunity to listen and empathize when they come to us with their concerns.  We also have the opportunity to help them to learn coping skills so they can learn to better handle the stressors as they get older.
