Can your kids catch your stress?

Research suggest yes, actually, even if you try to hide it.

Our resident workplace and career guru Brandon Smith explains how kids can pick up on our subtle signs of stress.

Brandon Smith teaches about leadership, communication, and workplace culture at Emory University's Goizueta Business School. More of his advice is on his blog and at theworkplacetherapist.com. And while you’re there, ask him your workplace or career question. We might use your question on a future radio segment.
