"Stress, either psychological or physical, can produce physical symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, weight gain, headaches and dizziness. Symptoms may be exaggerated when stress occurs after a stressful situation. The physical symptoms of stress are also very much like those of depression, anxiety and panic disorder, which often co-occur with stress. Stress can also exacerbate other health problems if an underlying health disease exists (see Signs and Symptoms below)." - Anonymous Online Contributor

"The study did not detect parenting stress in the control group as it was conducted in the field and thus, it cannot be used as a sham intervention. It is suggested that randomized controlled trials should be conducted in the same setting and with a sample of children at a similar level of education and to avoid the use of an electronic intervention for the control group." - Anonymous Online Contributor
