The ability to handle pressure is a skill that your little boy will use all through his life.

Academics can cause a lot of pressure situations for school-going children. Grades, project deadlines, exams and so on, all push them to undue extremes at times. What are some positive parenting tips that can help your child deal with academic pressure?

“Sometimes sports-related stress is good — it prepares the body to rise to a challenge with focus, strength, stamina, and heightened alertness. On the other hand, too much of it can exhaust a kid's energy and drive, leading to sports burnout,” says kidshealth.org.

Your little darling will come across stress in areas other than sports too. Peer pressure is something that all of us have faced at one time or another. Your son’s peers are the most influential people in his life. Peer pressure can create some very uncomfortable scenarios. Similarly, parents, coaches and significant others in his life can be the reason for stress in his life. New beginnings and new responsibilities that come with the start of every academic year can put a lot of stress on your child.

What are the red flags that you need to look out for to know if your little prince is under too much pressure? What changes need to happen for children to experience less pressure? What role can playing sports have in helping your child stay cool under pressure? Should you expect perfection in your child? How can counseling help parents and children alike when it comes to handling pressure situations?
