What is really going on with our children lately?
Maybe it is just my perspective, but I swear it seems like most of the people I know have a child with a “behavioral disorder.” I might be imagining it, but kids are so bad anymore! I don’t know anyone my age or older that would have behaved the way that most of the young children that I know behave now.
I’m not discrediting anyone’s claim that there is a cause behind their child’s behavior, but is this really just about being able to diagnose more efficiently than in the past? Have we always be plagued by so many disorders? Or is something causing a rise in mental, emotional and neurological issues in our young?
Honestly, I’d have to say more than 50% of the young children I have met in the last 10 years have some kind of behavioral issue. If not more. In fact, at this point, it makes me afraid to have my own children… where is it coming from? Is it just my imagination?
