Burnout is a matter of imbalance in life very often (Nijboer, 2006). In order to know more about imbalance and exhaustion in children, stress and coping in children will be investigated in this literature study. The goal is to identify common childhood stressors, the ways children cope with stress, and what factors make children vulnerable to these stressors. This leads to three basic research questions: 1. What causes stress in children? Can any common childhood stressors be identified? 2. How do children cope with stress? Which coping strategies are (mal)adaptive? 3. What makes children vulnerable to stress? Can any vulnerability factors or protective factors be identified?
