Stressors for teens
By: Autumn Earles
School demands, problems with friends or bullying, peer pressure, family problems and/ or abuse, moving or changing schools, and breaking up with a bf or gf are stressors.
Environmental stressors include unsafe neighborhood, media, natural disasters, threat of terrorist attacks, traffic, chemicals, war, and global warming.
Changes in the body, illness, injury, and disability all contribute to biological stress.
Thinking can cause stress, especially if it's about personal appearance, not fitting in, and if you have poor self-esteem.
Taking on a busy schedule, relationship issues, smoking, and using drugs and/ or alcohol can be stressful.
