Yes, stress is a part of life. It's all how we handle it. Sometimes I feel like I lose my mind and other times I just try to meditate the stress away. For me, the best way to handle stress is to blow off some steam, meditate and then handle the situation. Now I would not do this in case there was an emergency...I would act right away in an emergency. But when stress feels like it's eating you alive just breathe. Do something to get your mind off it. I like to watch stuff that makes me laugh. When I'm stressed, I want to surround myself with comedy and funny people.

Tracking your child with a GPS. You turn your back for one second at the mall, and poof... you child isn't there.

This is the case most of time and as a father of a 7 year old, it scares me sometimes when he plays outside.
