“Kids today are overly stressed, media saturated, relationally malnourished, over materialized, ADD defined, and often confused about who they are suppose to be. It has become the norm to pile adult pressures on our kids….According to (one study), approximately 60 percent of teenagers and 50 percent of “tweenagers” say that they are always on the edge of stress, citing reasons ranging from grades to weight and living in a conflicting relationship with their parents, all on an average of five to six hours of sleep a night (2-4 hours less than what is needed).” Ownership Road, p 45-46
Ownership Road: Leading Our Children To An Authentic Faith That Prepares Them For Life After High School
