Its Association with the Mental and Physical Health of Their Children” in an upcoming issue of the International Journal of Health,
Wellness and Society.
of this thesis study was to investigate the association between
perceived home school parental stress levels and the mental and physical health
of their children. It was
determined that overall stress levels of homeschooling families are relatively
low when compared to national averages. It was also determined that a positive
relationship was found between the parents and their children’s stress levels.
No relationships were found between physical fitness levels and stress levels
in either sample.

interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of issues at the intersection of
human physiology, epidemiology, and its relation to medical public policy,
health education, and the cultural associations of well-being.
