Helping Parents, Teachers, and Kids Thrive
In today’s insanely demanding world, child and teen stress has literally become toxic.
Nearly 60% of youth report feeling stressed about balancing their daily activities. Almost half report feeling anxious, sad, or irritable due to stress. One out of every 3 teenagers in America report feeling tired and overwhelmed by stress. Stress-related sleep problems, academic problems, behavior problems, and youth suicide risk are all on the rise. So is childhood trauma.
Equally challenging is the stress that many parents and teachers face – managing our own lives on top of trying to meet the needs of our children or students. There never seems to be enough time or energy as we all deal with information overload and emotional overwhelm.
When parents and professionals come together to raise ourchildren with clear, caring intentions, we can help restore sanity to humanity – one child, one teen at a time. That’s what A Mindful Village is all about!
