Stress in America
Read Article

A study produced by the American Psychological Association finds that stress levels reported in teens tops that of adults.  

Approximately 1 in 3 every teenage boy, and nearly half of teenage girls feel:
                                    • irritable or angry

 

                                  • nervous/anxious

 

                                  • overwhelmed

 

                                  • fatigued

How to define stress

Stress is when a person experiences an uncomfortable “emotional experience accompanied by predictable biochemical, physiological and behavioral changes.” Is it any wonder our kids feel more stress now given circumstances such as:

                                    • Feeling pressure to be successful in today’s society, which goes beyond grades to include community involvement, awards, and sports participation

 

                                  • Being bullied (77 percent of kids are bullied mentally, verbally and physically, while only 10% tell their parents)

 

                                  • Having “Code Red” alerts at their school when their physical safety is being threatened

 

                                  • Measuring their “like-ability” via social media

 

                                  • Experiencing criticalness about their appearance (68% girls, 55% boys)

Stress follows kids

But, emotional instability doesn’t stop at high school; it follows our kids to college. USA Today reports half of all college students have had suicidal thoughts.

What we are seeing is our kids are inundated with emotional overwhelm and don’t have the tools to know how to effectively handle their feelings and stress.

In 1983, the D.A.R.E. campaign was created because drugs were infiltrating our schools and we wanted to teach our kids awareness and strategies to deal with this problem. Much like how D.A.R.E. gave children guidance on how to deal with drug infiltration, your child now needs education and tools to deal with the all-consuming problem of emotional overwhelm and stress.

The time has come to break the unhealthy legacy of stress in America by

teaching kids about the effects of stress and help them learn healthy ways to understand and cope with their emotions. By giving kids the tools to form healthy lifestyles and behaviors, we help them to grow into healthy adults.   E3: Emotional Empowerment Education teaches your tween and teen to remain aware of who they are regardless of the emotions that arise and to use their feelings to effectively navigate their circumstances while remaining true to themselves.
