Family Stress

Family stressWhile stress may be normal for many families, what is more important is how a family deals with stress that appears in their household or even that which concerns relatives outside of the immediate family. The causes of stress will vary from family to family, but there are some similarities. Far too often, expectations that are too high (unreasonable) are one of the big causes of stress for families everywhere. When the symptoms of stress begin to appear for a family, there is still hope. Here at, you can get online coaching or therapy that can help a family learn how to better deal with stress.

Causes of Family Stress

The exact source of stress for a family may be caused by a large natural disaster, a death in the family, or one of many other emotional and traumatic experiences. Finances are another issue that cause stress for many families. When money problems begin to appear, they can cause a ripple effect that tears families apart. Health and jobs are two other causes of family stress. The exact circumstances will vary from household to household, but when the symptoms of stress begin to appear, getting treatment should be a priority before the problem blossoms and branches into other problems - from major depression to substance abuse. 

Symptoms of Family Stress 

The most common indicator that there is too much stress in a family is that they are constantly busy, never able to relax, and rarely spend much time together as a whole unit. This can range from not eating meals together or eating them very quickly then departing. This can lead to frustration for many different members of the family. When there is a constant sense of urgency in a household, it can have negative effects on how well the household functions. While there may not be a magic way to make stress disappear completely - especially in the modern world - there are many techniques for dealing with stress that can be learned. Behavioral therapy may also be helpful.

  • Avoiding family members
  • Frustration
  • Inability to relax
  • Quick meals together
  • Everyone in the house isolated in their room
  • A constant sense of urgency
