They see a world ravaged by wars, riots, poverty,
natural disasters, unemployment, fake news,
the threat of global warming, civil unrest, migration, anti-Semitism!
Crime is escalating, homelessness and economic hardship is increasing, sex/human trafficking is widespread.
Now, add in the opioid crisis, gangs, the constraints of schoolwork, the impact of bullying especially cyberbullying, and the influence of social media, and we have a world full of confusion, hatred and very little regard for the health and wellbeing of others.
Children and teenagers feel that they have
little control over their lives and their future
(but it doesn’t have to be this way…)
See, we have become a world where entitlement, popularity, good looks and acquiring material goods is the norm. We expose children and teenagers to life problems, the horrors of the world and yet we rarely sit down with them and explain right from wrong, good from bad. Practically every child and teenager own a phone or tablet and social media has become the surrogate parent, the teacher, and the babysitter. We seem to think that giving our kids whatever he/she wants, treating them as if they are our best friends and confidantes, will make them happier and feel loved.
Sadly, this is not true.
Recent statistics show that 1 in 5 children/teenagers have a mental illness and 50 percent of all mental illnesses will shows signs by age 14 yrs. and 75 percent of all mental illnesses will show signs by age 24yrs.
Depression in the younger generation has increased steadily for the past 50 years, approximately 20 percent of children have an anxiety disorder, and suicide in teenagers has increased 28 percent since 2000. Suicide is now the second leading cause of death in children ages 5 to 24yrs old.
Children as young as six and seven years old are being diagnosed with major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Every single day, approximately 3041 students in grades 9 through 12 attempts to die by suicide.
Our kids need our help now.
(Here’s how we can help them…)
Studies show that by supporting and nurturing a child/teenager’s emotional, social and educational needs, we help them develop a value system, become self aware and confident, develop responsible decision-making skills, form healthy relationships, and create positive life experiences for self and others.
My philosophy is to Engage children and teenagers, to Educate them about mental illness and bullying and to Empower them to develop confidence and skills to continue to move ahead in their own life journey.
Because of these insights, real world experience and techniques I have gathered over many years, I knew it was time to create a solid detailed online course on how we can help our Children now, that can be accessed from any tablet, computer, or smart phone. It was time.
