Yale Medicine Magazine, 2002 - Autumn

This book can help parents help their children cope with the stresses they will face in their daily lives, from the aftermath of September 11 to the challenges of everyday events and activities.

Marks says some of the stresses are obvious and dramatic and are clearly a product of the “new world disorder,” and others are more subtle and a result of the pressures parents place on their children, including an overload of activities and excessive pressure to succeed.

Marks shows how many stress-related disorders can be avoided and treated without medication. He offers suggestions for exercise, expression, breathing, visualization and meditation.
