Why it is important to teach your children that overworking isn’t cool

Teach your children overworking is not equal to hard work: They should focus on productivity, not on working hours

Kids are overworked, and with homework, academics, examinations and test anxiety, as well as after-school activities, they can become extremely stressed. It is a known fact that chronic stress is terrible for adults, but it's especially harmful to kids since it can produce long-term difficulties with sophisticated thinking and memory abilities, attention, learning, and behaviour, among other things. Any kind of reaction, physical, chemical or emotional, can put children into depression.

When confronted with a complex circumstance, children might get depressed. Overworking is ingrained in our culture. We frequently feel guilty for taking breaks. In fact, the idea of overworking is planted in our minds right from the beginning. Here is why it is important to teach your children that overworking isn’t cool. It doesn’t guarantee desired results. In fact, one should be focused on bringing out the best by putting in efforts but not by burning out themselves in the process.

Signs That Your Kids Are Overworked And Stressed:

  1. A shift in behaviour: If your youngster is becoming increasingly angry or pessimistic about themselves, their life, and their schoolwork.

  2. Sleeping problems start at an early age.

  3. Children started stress eating or under-eating.

  4. Children that are feeling insecure or have a lot on their minds may miss toileting cues. Reassure your child that you are not angry when he has an accident.

  5. Sometimes, the pressure to please parents causes children to be perfectionists and worry constantly. Build your child’s confidence so he can meet challenges and solve problems on his own.

  6. Sleep-related fear is a common response to stressful or traumatic experiences. Telling your child stories about other kids with feelings just like theirs can help them feel better. It lets them know that you understand their feelings.
