Pressure from all sides…
Social media makes everything public knowledge, and it’s hard to keep things private. Kids feel enormous pressure to do well and be the absolute best, most perfect version of themselves.
Kids don’t necessarily know how to get ‘better’ at everything they are expected to do. This pressure builds and builds until they can’t take it anymore. It spills out over the edges of life and seeps into the parts that should be calm and tame – and safe.
Who feels the brunt of these frustrations?
Where do kids take out these frustrations and anxieties and worries? On the people that love them best. They start turning into something that you might describe as angry or miserable. You hardly recognize your own child.
Or these pressure-filled kids start isolating themselves, sleeping more. They aren’t talking to you at all. You’re not sure who they’re talking to. But you’re worried, and you’re scared. You want things to be easier for them, and for your family.
