America’s teen anxiety epidemic is heartbreaking. Parents, here’s the incredible thing you must do now | Fox News

TRUTH BOMBS: There is a relationship between the culture and our stress level. Our culture pivots on a belief that our personal value is determined by our productivity. For this cause, there is a relationship between the unemployment rate and suicide (mostly in men). From an early age, our culture is now instructing young people that their social status and productivity is their meaning and value in life. Of course, these principles are ever changing and completely arbitrary so now they have an inner conflict that often cannot be resolved.

ARTICLE: I sat on a parenting panel last month with a well-known and widely respected counselor by the name of Sissy Goff, M.Ed, LPC-MHSP. She is the Director of Child & Adolescent Counseling at Daystar in Nashville and when asked about the biggest issue facing kids today, she confirmed what you’ve probably read about recently on your news feed or even your Facebook feed – the increasing anxiety epidemic in our country.

But it’s not just an epidemic among our kids. It’s an epidemic among us — their parents.
