The Hartford Courant has an interesting article claiming that our youth is gripped by depression and anxiety, and are swamping psychiatric wards and therapists’ offices across the country.

According to the article, kids are showing up close to death in hospital emergency rooms or close to tears in the offices of psychologists, psychiatrists and social workers. They are the lost children of the 21st century, debilitated by depression, overwhelmed by anxiety, desperate to get back to the simple joys of childhood. They say that it is as if it were an epidemic.

Do you children feel this way? Have your children been more stressed out than in previous years?
