Today’s Children are Mini Adults
Children today are mini-adults loaded with responsibilities that are just as enormous as adults’. Children under the constant pressure of juggling their time between family, home, school, friends, and activities are experiencing higher anxiety and stress than the previous generation. More children are developing mental health problems such as depression and self-esteem issues have become an epidemic.
Antidepressant use in the U.S. Soars by 65 percent in 15 years
The number of Americans who say they’ve taken an antidepressant over the past month rose by 65 percent between 1999 and 2014, a new government survey finds.
By 2014, about one in every eight Americans over the age of 12 reported recent antidepressant use, according to a report released Tuesday from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Women are nearly twice as likely as men to be taking the medications, the report found, with antidepressants used by 16.5 percent of females compared to just under 9 percent of males.
Make Today a Healthier Day
Today’s adults and children are more overwhelmed and stressed than ever before. Both parents have to work to make ends plus parenting children and caring for aging parents, while children are shuffled back and forth to activities and while expecting to accelerate academically. As difficult as it is, we must make time to slow down and care for ourselves and teach our children the same. Any conscious changes you can make will support you and your children’s physical, emotional health while feeding your and their spirit.
