How Can Stress at Home Affect My Child?

Stress at home may impact a child’s emotions and behavior in school. These stressful events, or traumatic events, may include death of a family member, divorce, or a fire. Trauma can also be when a person is abused by another person, in a physical, mental, or emotional way.

There are staff members in each school who are trained to work with students who have gone through trauma. They can work with you and your child to create plans for the classroom and at home. These will help your child manage their behavior and stay on track in school. Explore our materials and resources on trauma below.
