The teen stress test below
is for teenagers and to some extend also children. I generally do not encourage parents to try the test with a child, because it is impossible to recognize stress in another person.
Instead I would recommend that you seek out a pediatrician or maybe a child psychologist if you are in any way worried about your child.
If you want to, it is interesting to compare the events in the teen stress test with the ones in the adult stress test. Look how different they are.
And also try and look at the factor: the factor is how important the event (to the left) is. So if an adult loses their spouse (the husband or wife) it is 100 in stressfulness, for adults this is the most stressful that can happen to them.
If you are a teenager - check out the list below here. You can see that teens actually have two things that can happen to them with a score of 100.
Also look at the very bottom of both lists. For a teenager the lowest factor (or score if you like) is 26, but for an adult it is 11.
This means, that teenagers can be more stressed than their parents. It does not mean that you are, but you have higher factors attached to the events that can come in your life.
Actually, if you do a little math on the numbers you will see, that the teen stress test has a score that is 148% of the adult score. That means that you can be almost one-and-a-half times as stressed as your parent are. Crazy right?
Feel free to try the stress test below, but remember. It is not the end of the world if you are a little stress, everybody feels stressed now and then.
It is a good thing to talk to your parents if you feel stressed out, or if everything just becomes too overwhelming a times. I guarantee you, your parents have felt the same way - and they were also teenagers once!
