i've always wondered. whenever i'm stressed my parents / adults always seem to think that its invalid or that i'm not stressed at all. like just because i don't stress as much / as often as they do does not mean that it's invalid.

Because we were teenagers once and we remember what you stressed about and most of it was plain dumb that you could easily fix or blew out of proportion. When you become an adult and start having real responsibilities then you'll see what real stress is like haha.1

Sadly many so-called adults and parents are ignorant. There isn't really a difference regarding stress, as its all the same thing. People of different life styles, income level, background, nationality, culture, etc, goes through different levels of stress. But it still does the same amount of damage that it does to other adults. This is why studies have shown according to Web MD about how bad the stress is for kids as well as teenagers:

And the many other articles that are linked to this. And its very sad. I say many don't care how its effecting their kids as long as it doesn't personally effect THEMSELVES. Remember the 'anything for your happiness' mantra. Its a sad situation.1
