'Behaven Kids' offered advice Tuesday on how to deal with common stresses that children often have. Jane Peterson, CEO of the organization, said young children can get stressed about all kinds of things. She explained it is important for Parents to deal with the situations correctly.

Peterson said children can get anxious over normal situations, crowds, new people, loud noises, and even new situations - such as trips to the dentist.

She suggested a good way to deal with such stress is to prepare them for what they are about to experience. For example, take your child to the dentist on a day when he or she doesn't have an appointment. That way they can get acquainted. Or, during a thunderstorm, break out ice cream to make it a fun event.
