We have childline if more people would go and ring them then we would have a much better time and wouldn't need to talk about it.
I think that if you want their should be a certain teacher that you have quite a lot if lessons with and feel comfortable talking to that you can either see individually or just have special optional classes with others about more general issues.
mindfullness is actually quite soothing
I think just having toime to talk to people like your friends?
I'm really not sure but I'd probably want to rest at school
But I'm normally fine so I don't think I'll need it
Other: I would go to my bedroom and read my favourite book to help me calm down.
more time with parents who are attuned to a childs needs and feelings.
less time on computers as they are bad for brain development
less pressure from schools for me to attain targets
If you have a well trained adult that you trust, then you can rely on them to help hard things.
Play a videogame, it helps me forget about worries
we should get no homework
A specially trained adult is not always the person you trust. you would have more trust in close and understanding relatives or a person who you would like to share your feelings with
Other: Less pressure from exams at school and more creative things to make you relax.
Talk to my BFFs
doing something that makes you feel safe or calm etc. reading swimming or just doing anything that you enjoy or if that does not work you have child line there for a reason
A role model
Meditating is relaxing and should be done every day.
Child line is quite a big thing in our school and we are always encouraged to talk to them if we need to. The good thing about having friends as well is that you can talk to them if you are stressed ? or tired out.
I put the 4th one as I think you need some more time to relax.
i think i agree with GeeMee cos friends will understand you more than some adult you have never ever even seen before
please put other :):) :) :)
TF11 i really like the idea but it depends what video game you play. A dramatic game might remind you of how you act like the character you are playing as
for sure people to talk to
to spend time with mu mum or dad
I think most stress comes from school. If we get opportunities to associate school with something positive instead of stress, I think it would help a lot.
school workshops DO NOT WORK
adults are fine but might laugh
life lessons are not necessary
I think a pet like a cat or dog help you to fell less stressed and down day to day
i would like to be with an animal!!!!!!!
RING CHILDLINE BUT FIRST TELL A CLOSE ADULT WHO YOU TRUST
Other:Just have some time after school to relax completely.
Studying the Bible
I agree with the yoga but if you had some good friends with you no matter what it helps you calm down as well
I think it's different for different people but I would cuddle my dog?????
Any person who will listen to you,not share what you tell them,and help you.
Giving my mum and dad a cuddle while singing.
You can talk to your friends and people you trust so that gives you a feeling of trust.
I would go to a specially trained adult to do this because they are more experienced than the other classifications and they can always help you feel better again.
i love yoga
Just relax??, lie on my bed, and read. ??
I have chronic depression and fatigue, and each week i go to a psychologist - that helps.
Whenever i feel sad i like to snuggle up in a blanket with some herbal tea and watch my favourite youtubers.
To any of you struggling, i would recommend Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or try Meditation .
If you have depression, Something i learnt is to look into the future, when you feek happy, and keep that with you . Then learn to gradually change your habits, perhaps try meditation or yoga, to achieve that goal.
Your happiness is in your own hands. :)
Talk to friends and family, and also adults, I personally think that probably all of the choices; different people suit different things to help them. Also, play therapy is very good for some people.
Other: I would just play my computer and take my mind off things. Normally i talk to my Mum as we are very close.
I would talk to someone i know and trust! I would not like to talk to a trained specialist cuz i dont know them and i might feel uncomfortable!
Trained experts can help to feel less stressed and I think it would be a relief that you can talk to someone in private rather than having to share your problems in public with your class or even the school :)
When I'm stressed I listen to music, or watch funny videos! I always feel calmer.
i found the other opions abouslutely bonkers
I think you should share your stress with your parents or a trusted adult.
I agree with uniquepika. Books can take you into a different world far far away from your troubles. For example, I like the Harry Potter books and pretending I am Hermione Granger. Making stress balls are cool when you fill an empty balloon with flour but try not to spill it on your aunt's laptop! (oops...)
AlI I would need is to relax, read an eventful book for about 30 minutes to help me relax, not exactly yoga
I think a pet would help!
I think a pet can help you feel less stressed or down day to day as you can cuddle and play with them to make you feel better.
I think we would feel less stressed if people(Le teachers) put less pressure on the students.
Talking to my friends does the trick for me
I would talk to a teacher
Just to put my foot down and say it. Most parents aren't that nice to there children and they aren't nice to us at school so if children were a bit happier and less grumpy and playful it would rub of on everyone and be like a big happy family.
Sometimes when I feel sad I don't want to talk to a parent/carer because I know it will be awkward. There is a school councillor but I don't know her very well. In the end I mostly just keep it to myself or right in my diary about it (if I can remember where I've hidden it!). Kids (especially kids new to starting secondary school) should be taught tips like keeping a diary (it really helps) or reading (this sounds cheesy) cheerful books.
I want to be able to choose what we do when we get that oppurtunity
i like to go for a run or a walk . dancing is good as well
I think talking is very important, if parents can talk to therapists, why cant we?
I think it would help, because I'm stressed quite a lot, to have less homework and teachers ?? have more resources to help us. Government?... credit rset005
I talk to my mom when I feel stressed.
Having some fresh air.
we have childline and other things but if we talk to a trained adult we can get our feelings out not feel down or stressed any more and you know someone you trust knows
I would play games with my family and do something special with them.
I get very, very, very stressed with homework.
I think we need to talk to childline about it, kind of like what chatt001 said.
A day out with a friend!
Chatting to my friends and family makes me feel happy and safe
I'd do something I love with the people I love
I'd feel uncomfortable talking to an adult I barely know
talk to the teacher
Having someone who will just let me ramble endlessly about my problems helps as long as it's NOT AN ADULT; they just don't seem to get it. Also, getting advice from people you trust:)
I would do something I really like doing!
Tea and a good book
we have a mindful lesson every day and it really helps deal with stress
maybe u should suggest it at your school
sometimes just stretching for a minute can help you relax
I watch movies and sometime anime
Talk to dad. YOGA SHOULD BE DONE EVERY DAY, THOUGH!!
I would like to do something fun like go to a theme park or a water park (practically have a nice day out!!!!!
I would talk to a person you trust or some one who might work in child line because they might of felt the same way you might be feeling and might of had a very good solution to that problem so they could help and guide you
I do the one most reliable thing, the thing that will work the most: Pray.
I just talk t my mum
I just ignore everything and everyone until I've calmed down and they always understand that I need time
Instead of picking one of the other options I said 'other';I would suggest to read a book ? or have some quiet time by yourself.???
I just get on my bike and ride it in the wind when i am angry
You can talk to Childline or you can just have some quiet time and think about why you're stressed and just try and stop it
talking to my best friend
Talking does not really help. I just spent time with my friends or pets.
I would talk to a specially trained adult because they know what to do?
I chose other and I would do maths science English PHSE R.E or maths
toy, games, putty, stress ball,etc
they put my mind off stuff
Yoga calms the senses and opens the mind
I would love to play a match of cricket ,my favourite sport ,as it would make me feel better
Have a good cry ?
I would probably do some gymnastics. I love gymnastics and do it when I am sad, happy, bored, lonely or even when my stress levels rocket.
I think ,for me, having something or someone like an animal or just a member of your family being with you would help a lot. ;)
Talk to people you trust.? ?
I just like to rest at the end of the day,after school.Maybe read?
I would want something that would be where you are doing something but it would be reasonably calm. Maybe something like woodwork.
I picked other because I think animals cure everything
I sort my own problems out myself
I chose other. The thing that would make me feel better is Childline as they are frendily and always are there for you
For Other: My mother would help me out.
All of them!
definatley other! I find it helpful to read to escape to another persons life , or to talk to my Mum. But I find it most helpful to talk to my rabbits.
School yoga or mindfulness classes. It will help calm the mind and let pain and suffering and hard feelings exit the body. You could try some pottery or do whatever makes you happy, like dancing or spinning or singing or reading or writing.
All of those and showing my feelings creatively.
Childline is 0800 11 11
Watching a movie or reading a book
Being able to see friends more in your break time or have more fun lessons.
Art helps me relax as well as meditation and daydreaming.
