Silent Tragedy in Child Mental Health

This article, The silent tragedy affecting today’s children, is a must read for parents (and beneficial for anyone who spends a lot of time with kids), as this is about the children who will be our future and how we conceptualize and treat kiddos.  This is a silent tragedy when it comes to child mental health with some studies showing 1 in every 5 children having a mental health diagnosis, and suicide as the second leading cause of death for ages 15 to 24, and so much of this is preventable through changes in parenting.

The writer, Victoria Prooday,  doesn’t mince her words, but these are difficult truths that need to be heard.  This article is not meant to discourage or blame parents, but rather provide a different perspective to parenting, provide tools, and create more intentional parenting.
