Research Paper on Children Found Stress in Study

This research topic is “Children Found Stress in Study”. Stress refers to the reaction of body to a change that requires a physical, mental or emotional adjustment or response. Now-a-days children are found stress that makes him feel frustrated, angry, nervous, or anxious. With the modern educational system too much pressure is put on children, which they could not bear. So they are fall in physical and mental stress. Teachers and parents are mostly responsible for put down stress on children. Teachers are giving broad syllabus for examinations, taking lots of examination and imposing lots of home task; which are so difficult for children to overcome. On the other hand, parents are also supporting the school authority. From my research it is clear that children are facing different physical and mental stress. Which is seemed to be a big problem for children. Because of stress children are fall in physical problems like Migraine, Abdominal pain, Loss of appetite or anorexia, Stomach cramps, Nausea etc. Children are also suffering from mental stress like inability to concentrate, loss of self-confidence, insatiable cravings, Panic attacks. These types of stress can change children’s merit into demerit. This is not acceptable for any nation.
Stress refers the reaction of body to a change that requires a physical, mental or emotional adjustment or response. Girls and boys experience distinctly different patterns of stress in study that may leave them more vulnerable to depression, which tended to increase with age. Problems begin when ordinary stress becomes too much stress or distress that results in both psychological and biological changes that could place a person at a risk for illness. Today stress levels among children have been going up dangerously due to the pressure of their academic or cultural activities. Not all children can cope with such high levels of expectation and parents do not seem to realize or accept that their children are under severe pressure. Stress is most often seen as an overt physical reaction: crying, sweating palms, running away, aggressive or defensive outbursts, rocking and self-comforting behaviors, headaches and stomach aches, and sleep disturbances. Experts point out that children may react globally through depression and avoidance; excessive shyness; hyper-vigilance; excessive worrying; freezing up in social situations; seemingly obsessive interest in objects, routines, foods, and persistent concern about what comes next.

Students, who have developed a proper attitude to learning and good learning techniques and habits, should not have to worry about stress. Stress is essential for effective study and memory, but it is the excess stress – anxiety, worry, fear of failure etc. – which creates a level of stress high enough to cause loss of memory and memory blocks in examinations. This is what students fear, that they will not remember what they have learned. Of course, if they haven’t learned the work in first place, stress or no stress will make no difference. A certain amount of stress is normal and not always bad. Sometimes stress can push a child on to greater achievement. Unfortunately, children are becoming highly stressed at younger and younger ages today. Stress varies from child to child.

Stress is now becoming a common phenomenon among all aged people. From the early age we are facing different forms of stress. Children are in a critical position in this regards. Children are experiencing many forms of pressure and vary by the individual, the child's developmental level, and the child's previous life experience. Stress can have positive as well as negative influences. The younger the child, the greater the impact of new events, and the more powerful and potentially negative stress becomes. Some stress is a normal part of a child's everyday life and can have positive influences. However, excessive stress can have both immediate and far-reaching effects on children's adaptability to new situations, even events that are seemingly unrelated to the specific stressful event.

The educational system is highly competitive from the start of primary school with great emphasis on academic performance and intolerance of failure. It is found that the competitive and punitive educational environment leads to high levels of stress. From my research I found that Chinese children as young as six are suffering from serious stress at school. A scientific survey of 9 to 12-year-olds in eastern China found that more than 80 per cent worried "a lot" about exams, two-thirds feared punishment by their teachers and almost three-quarters reported fearing physical punishment from their parents.

In Bangladesh, around 25% of total populations are under 18 years old and those are defined as Children. Most of them are school going and like China our students are also facing huge load of study and they are facing unbearable stress. But no details research were carried on regarding this which influence me more to carry out research regarding Children are stress on study. I gave emphasis on some specific issues like who is the mainly responsible for stress, what are the reasons behind putting pressure on children etc.
