Unruly and Depressed

How the pressure to succeed is creating a generation of unruly, depressed teenagers

Is it pressure to succeed? Or is it because they are not allowed to fail? The prevailing thoughts the past 30 years have been toward not allowing children to succeed or fail. No winners, no losers. Self esteem absent accomplishment. Children who are not allowed to fail never learn how to overcome failure, they never learn how to win. That makes life tough in the real world where success is built on failure.

I'm going to post something here that goes into this deeper in the next few days. Watch for it.
