Stress seems to not only be in many facets of adult daily life, but is often a factor in the daily lives of our teens. The National PTA and The American Psychological Association partnered to highlight findings from the APA's 2013 Stress in America Survey. The survey found that 13-17-year-olds are experiencing stress levels higher than they consider to be healthy with more than a quarter of teens reporting the following symptoms: neglecting responsibilities, feeling overwhelmed, having negative thoughts or changes in sleeping habits. In addition, more than a third reported feeling tired, feeling nervous or anxious, or experiencing irritability or anger.
