Do you have a plan to deal with school stress for your high schooler?

Asked by wundayatta (58638points) April 15th, 2011

Yesterday, my daughter told me that her history teacher had just dumped four week’s worth of assignments on her to do over spring break, which starts Monday. It seems like kids are getting more and more pressure about all the stuff they have to do to get into a good college. Apparently the emotional health of college freshmen is at its lowest level ever.

It seems like it would be prudent to develop a plan to help your teen deal with stress so they don’t get depressed or even attempt suicide because they feel like they are failing.

How would you or how do you prepare your teens to deal with this stress?
