Emotional Wellness- Article Review Part I
Dear Pine Run Families,
When it comes to Emotional Wellness, there appears to be no quick-fix, or one right answer.
As I read the Psychology Today article entitled, 10 Reasons Teens Have So Much Anxiety Today, I began thinking about students' formative years at Pine Run, and how we seek to counter and combat anxiety-inducing influences early on. In today's fast-paced world, I believe it is necessary for parents, teachers, and our community as a whole to collectively explore, question, and consider both the stressors that influence our children, along with the de-stressors that can help students effectively cope with daily life and periodic struggle.
Below are the first two influences named in the 10 Reasons Teens Have So Much Anxiety Today article. I will address each of the remaining named stressors in subsequent newsletters. This full article is linked below, along with two other pieces that may give us some insights to better guide our decision-making in the days and years ahead.
