Stressed teens deserve more attention

(KPLR) – In Monday’s “The Way It Oughta Be”, if you think you're stressed out, you better check with a teenager before you complain.  

I think this is the best stress reliever I know.  A walk around Creve Coeur Lake clears my head.  I don't get here enough.

I think we all have stress.   It's how we handle it that matters.  I recently read a report indicating teens are more stressed than adults.  They worry about school, friends, jobs and fitting in socially.

I think a lot of adults feel their stress is somehow more important than what teens feel.  The latest numbers suggest we should think again.

The next time the weather warms up a bit, it's probably time for the whole family for a walk.

I'm JB, and that's “The Way It Oughta Be”.
