Kids Stress causes Brain Damage


US scientists discovered a brain structure involved with memory and emotion had shrunk in children with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

A withered hippocampus may make a child less able to deal with stress and raise anxiety, Pediatrics journal reports.

More often than not, if a kid is stressed out, it’s the parents fault.  Children pick up on their parents stress levels.  And everything a parent does can have a lasting, permenant effect on the child.

Exercise is one of the greatest anti-stress tools we have at our disposal.   If you have kids, then you have no excuse.  Your health is your childs health.  They’ll follow your lead.
