7th grade stress from school “ Is it real” the simple answer:  YES!

“Seventh graders also undergo intense cognitive, physical, and emotional changes that unearth uncomfortable contradictions. They aren’t little kids anymore, but they aren’t big kids yet, either. “Seventh graders experience middle-child syndrome,” explains Powell-Lunder, “You’re not special anymore. You aren’t so cute anymore. You’re no longer sixth graders who get a healthy dose of coddling so they can adjust to middle school. You’re not the glorified eighth graders who are focusing on getting ready for high school.”

MATH STRESS WHY!!!

-       Not doing assignment on time and accumulate it until it becomes overload.

-       Not study for test.
