Survey proctors ask teens a battery of questions about depression

Continuously lied to that the world will end in 12 years, and they tend to believe the lying teachers and thugs in the Enemedia on this garbage.

Right on #1 - lies and being not corrected on 'distorted thinking' that both the media, their teachers & they themselves accept. See The Coddling of the American Mind - by First Amendment proponent Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt. It is plain scary. They point out 3 Bad Ideas that have been accepted by the media & the educational establishment & the fact that kids spend way too much time on the computer - actually on their device - smart phones and have lost real world experience.

I'll resist the temptation to shout 'Grow Up', but posts #1 and #3 are spot on. They're told by most educators that the world is a horrible place and it's our fault, their fault, no use in living. Look around, kids. You are so damn lucky to pop up on this planet at this time in our history. You / we have never had it easier. Now go put your device down for a minute, find something you like to do, and do it. Along the way you'll find some friends who share your passion. Make a lot of money or make a little....whatever makes you happy.

Liberals have demanded that we separate these teens from any moral guidance that might stabilize their emotions, and are now surprised at the outcome.

Oh for Pete's sake stop giving everyone victimhood status. Every teenage girl I ever knew suffered from depression, that is on Tuesday and Thursday and then was fine by Friday and if the "boy" called well it was euphoria. Hormones go wild, we have no idea what we are doing with the rest of our lives. It probably is as bad for boys but they never talked about it. We talked endlessly with our bestest friend who was our worst enemy the following week. It is called growing up, stop with the studies and maybe we will all get through it with a minimum of scars. Make it a big deal and we will move into that state of victimhood and never get over the teen years.

I grew up in the 70s and 80s and learned to have great pride in America and the accomplishments of its brightest citizens. I watched NASA rockets take off on television at school assemblies and watched patriotic American athletes excel at the Olympics. Today's kids have gadgets to play with but nothing to believe in. They are only taught about how flawed this country is and give no credit at all to the founders for creating such a unique, wonderful, free society.

One of my favorite sayings is “Only unhappiness comes from comparison”. These teens are constantly on social media platforms looking at others lives. Among my 5 stepdaughters even there is comparison. The smart one, the pretty one etc. Add hormones and the typical angst of the teen years and yeah, you’ll get overload. I find a problem though with the word “depression”. Is it the normal anxiety we all feel but something deeper? I realized in my twenties that God made me a happy person. I don't mean that I found happiness through Christ (that came later in life) but he built me so I’m just naturally content. And truly that’s the thing I’ve been the most grateful for in my life.

I don’t remember any assessment or recognition of “depression” when I was age 17 or so. Good thing, since I eventually grew out, or coped with it, and went on as a relatively normal human, now age 76. Still, in retrospect, I believe that medications, as “SSRI”s, do much more good than harm. I wish that I had that option. But who knows?

Sex has become a bore to them. No challenge. You can do it with anybody, no big deal. Who needs marriage. My neighbor shacks up with a new girl every six to nine months. What do they have to look forward to, really. I would find it dreary and depressing too.

Most have been coddled, protected and given participation trophies. Kids today arent allowed to be kids because they might get hurt or someone will get their feelings hurt. The only moral absolute is political correctness, and those rules change on a dime. My niece was complaining last week rhat one of the boys in her class decided that he's transgendered. Thats not what bothers her.... its the fact tgat he now gets to use the girls locker room. When the girls complained, they were lectured for being discriminatory. 16 year old girls sharing the showers with a 16 year old boy. And democrats would have us believe that this us just peachy.

It's no wonder. Look what many teens experience each and every day - trying to fit in at school, insane never Trump parents or parent, observing mentally ill reporters on the msm channels, putting up with their own near-suicidal friends, living day to day while financially stressed, and totally unsure where they are going in their lives. They really don't have many other positive things happening in their day.

The cavalier “get off my lawn” attitude here towards this issue is concerning. I feel differently I guess, perhaps because I am actively raising young children. My husband and I regularly discuss how very grateful we are that Facebook came to be when we were in college, not high school. As older millennials (Xennials), we may have had flip phones and AOL, but our adolescent and teenage experiences more closely resembled those of our parents than those of even fellow millennials who are a few years younger than us. Instantaneous, widely disseminated communication in the hands of teenagers is an intimidating thing to face as a parent and a terrifying thing to face as a child. It makes me very sad for my children and their friends, I can see the heartache that awaits even the nicest, most well-grounded and well-behaved kids. I wish social media did not exist. Its disturbing effect on mental health, especially in adolescents and teenagers, should not be callously overlooked. That, coupled with the onslaught of climate hysteria is enough to drive any reasonable parent and kid over the edge. Please consider how challenging it is to carefully explain to a worried child that their teachers, their friends, the media, and practically EVERYONE in their orbit is trafficking in a massive global hoax— that the world isn’t ending and that their every tiny action isn’t killing the planet. All the while, you have to try to make sure no one is blacklisted from school events, threatened by teachers, lambasted on social media and penalized at work by nutcase leftists. That is what young conservative parents are dealing with, constantly. American society has changed tremendously in a terrifyingly short amount of time and it is dangerous and unfair to pretend things are the same as when you were a kid in the 60’s... 70’s... or even the late 90s...

They have no foundation. They are adrift in a sea of cultural rot. Spiritually, psychologically and emotionally, they are starving and in desperate need of good, wholesome nourishment, and all they are getting is M & Ms, Coca Cola, and cotton candy. Of course, they are depressed. You'd be crazy not to be depressed, if that was your reality. I feel tremendously sorry for this younger generation. They are not bad kids, and they are willing to learn, but no one has ever taught them. No one has cared enough to be tough with them and set firm boundaries. That's how kids know you love them. When they test the boundaries and you stand firm, it gives them a sense of being protected, despite how much they howl and protest. All of that, in addition to the points made in the previous posts would lead to some very screwed up kids.

Teenage girls are taught in public schools starting in kindergarten that they're nothing more than sex objects who must be coddled and told they have the right to do anything that feels good. No need to think you have to stress yourself in adulthood by working. The demonrats will give you everything for free. If an indoctrinated girl gets the brainwashed idea they should be a transvestite, so much the better, the demonrats will ensure the transition is paid for by taxpayers and if this screws you up mentally for life, well so what. If you get pregnant, so what, there's always the demonrat accommodating abortion available to you. If this hurts your teenage developing mind, again so what. Everything in life is absolutely free. Now they can enjoy feel good marijuana. Public education is nothing more than 13 straight years of brainwashing. No wonder this country is screwed up. Get rid of teacher unions and the Dept of Worthless Education.

And to think that back in my teen years kids didn't seem to be depressed. We lived with the threat of nuclear war hanging over us. It was a time when the Cold War was at its hottest. We were aware of the treat; after all, that was the time when kids practiced crawling under their desks for protection from a bomb, little as it was. Yet we took it in stride and kept living our lives. Today? Meh!

The most recent USDA data shows that 6,268,285 individuals discontinued their participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)— the program in charge of food stamps— since February 2017 when Trump finished his first month as president. Individual and household food stamp participation has consistently declined since 2013 back when the Obama administration was in power and enrollment in the program reached its highest point in U.S. history.

Donald Trump wants people to think he’s a winner. So why does he act like a loser? Winners convey a sense of effortless superiority. They don’t have to work at it. You just know they’re above it all. If someone tries to criticize them, it’s beneath their dignity to worry about it. It’s just a little speck they brush off their shoulder. The Brits are good at that, Boris Johnson especially. We still don’t know how things will turn out there, but I expect his aplomb will carry him through. “There are no disasters,” he once joked. “Only opportunities.

The Duchess of Sussex is said to have told her new PR company that she wants to 'break the internet'. Meghan Markle reportedly made the statement during a meeting with the company, Sunshine Sachs.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have embarked on a number of projects, seemingly away from the traditional Royal route, including Meghan's guest editorial at the UK version of Vogue magazine.
