“Prolonged stress in children can bring depression, impaired behavioral and emotional development and later medical issues, including high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes, all of which can affect our community for decades.  Crites went on to say that parents have had to deal with prolonged stress as while sheltering at home, struggling to home school their children and the effects of juggling additional demands,” said Kay Crites, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
