Objectives: Understanding the nature and types of stressful events in life of school age children. Method: In this qualitative study, using an open interview, the description of stressful life events by 29 schoolchildren in Tabriz, Iran, were recorded and analyzed. Results: 223 stressful events derived from the interviews, were classified into 17 basic categories. In the end, four themes were assumed for these categories: 1- non-supplied demands, 2- loss, 3- threatening events, 4- stimulating events. Conclusion: The categorization derived from this study was similar to other categorizations. Due to their developmental stage and cognitive level, childhood stressful life events are different from adulthood stressful life events to some extent.
