Anxiety Disorder in Children

20% of children are experiencing anxiety disorders according to this article. That is a significant number. The research tends to suggest our lifestyle and living environment are contributing it. How to stop the world? How to slow ourselves down. it has to be affecting adults too. Now we have the treadmill going , what can we do to slow it down and stop it? It means cutting yourself away from the pack. It also means more and more people might do it if they see the benefit in you and your children. Children are reacting to change and are suffering sleep deprivation, but I’d say that is happening to adults too. We are all doing to much and trying to fit too much in. We have to change, it is doing us harm and if we don’t deal with it, it will deal with us.
