Do you know why laughter is necessary for your children?

When did your kid laugh out loudly? If you have seen him do so it’s a good sign that he has stress releasing qualities in his nature, but if he’s seen worried, anxious or stressed over his tasks in the name of competition then it’s time for you to take a strong step.

Studies have found that children between 6 and 18 need more of psychological consultation than physiological.

Well, not all childhood stress is harmful, but the requirements of today’s so called competitive lifestyle are the possible reasons of stress in children.

Give your kids a daily dose of laughter to destress them
