The Importance of Reducing Parenting Stress
Bedtime stories can help little ones slip into peaceful slumber – an alternate universe of peace, quiet, and downtime for parents!
Bad news, parents: If you’re stressed, chances are, your child is too.
Think of your kid as a magnet, attracting whatever’s in its vicinity. According to the American Psychological Association, around 20% of children worry. As parents, we should never underestimate about children’s emotions. Transference of parental stress can cause a range of negative symptoms, from headaches to anxiety and even depression.
Parental stress is an ongoing issue in the world today. Parents today have growing to-do lists and responsibility, from raising future leaders to household duties, careers, side-hustles, and beyond. Such demanding lifestyles are notorious for causing parental stress, which has become “just part of being a parent.”

Parents today have growing to-do lists and responsibility, from raising future leaders to household duties, careers, side-hustles, and beyond. Such demanding lifestyles are notorious for causing parental stress, which has become “just part of being a parent.”
Unfortunately, such stress has been found to affect parenting behaviors and child adjustment. Studies show that parents experiencing higher levels of stress are more likely to be harsher on their children, engaging in negative interactions that can have adverse effects on the parent-child relationship. As we’re sure you can imagine, the long-term effects of this can be severe, causing increased anxiety in children, a weakened bond with your child, and much more.
