While some stress in life is normal and even healthy. kids today seem to be confronted with a myriad of experiences that can create tension and make coping with life a challenge. Common examples of these stressors include: lack of basic needs food. clothing. and shelter). divorce. death. illness. incarceration. foster care placement. family substance abuse. domestic violence. extended separation from a parent or loved one. or physical. sexual. emotional abuse.
