In the Blind Side, Michael, Leanne, and SJ faced the stress in the aftermath of the car accident. Michael stressed out over the fact that he may have cause the accident (and also his injury). He's overcome by guilt and reacts to the stress by basically breaking down and blaming himself. Leanne stressed over the possibility of both her kids being severely damaged by the car accident. However, after learning that they're both alright, she focuses her attention on calming Michael down, telling him that he didn't cause the accident and it could've happened to anybody. SJ, though the most physically damaged by the accident, doesn't even seem the slightest bit stressed. He cracks jokes and even seems to enjoy the attention he's recieving from everthing. In this time of adversity, he's perfectly calm.
