A GUIDE FOR TEACHERS AND PARENTS By Kim Norton
hen parents and teachers work together to identify and implement stress management strategies for our kids, it not only improves the general wellbeing and quality of life for that student, but also for that of the teacher, fellow classmates and family members.
The first step is to identify what stress looks like in our kids. From there, triggers or stressors can be identified and suitable strategies put in place to manage them via a Stress Management Action Plan. Regular, open communication between the teacher and parent/carer will see this Stress M.A.P come to life, a plan that can be adapted as the individual matures and shared with other teachers, relevant support staff and family members. 60
