8 Simple Stress Busters for Kids

Patty Chang Anker's two kids emote... "a lot." The mom of two, who also happens to be one of our Top 25 Funny Moms, tries not to let crying bouts, temper tantrums, and sibling rumbles get the better of her children — or her. As a yoga teacher for kids with special needs, she's accumulated quite a bit of experience calming kids whose "engines are revved."
