School is the most stressful factor in many children’s lives, a survey concludes.

Read a summary of poll findings on “Kids & Stress:How Do They Handle It?” from the National Association of Health Education Centers.

In the survey of 875 9- to 13-year-olds, 36 percent of respondents reported feeling upset or stressed out by grades, school, and homework, the highest percentage of any category of response.

The second and third most common factors cited as sources of stress were family problems, 32 percent; and issues involving friends or peers, 21 percent.

The Milwaukee-based National Association of Health Education Centers, the Jacksonville, Fla.-based Nemours Center for Children’s Health Media, and the department of health education and recreation at Southern Illinois University Carbondale conducted the survey.
