Stress Relief

“From pets to ‘recess’: High school stress relief” AP January 31, 2013

“It’s just one of a number of ways high schools across the country are trying to address what some call an epidemic of stressed-out, overwhelmed students.”
“The first [wellness room] opened in Camden, Maine, after a spate of suicides more than 10 years ago”
“Raychelle Lohmann, a professional counselor and author based in South Carolina, says any step schools take to reduce stress for students is a “step in the right direction.” ”

For stress relief, I’d bet on the dog anytime! Let’s not wait until a student snaps and commits suicide or hurts others.
Prevention is essential!
