Children feel stress during the day too

(WFIE) - Adults aren't the only ones who are stressed during the day. New research indicates young children feel it too.

Researchers studied 191 preschoolers at twelve different child care centers. They found children in classrooms with 10 students or fewer saw their stress hormones go down during the day, a normal reaction.

However, children in classes with 20 or more students, and those who would cling to their teachers, saw their stress hormones rise throughout the day.
