HealthDay (4/18, Preidt) reports that over 50% of US “adults believe children have worse emotional and mental health than children in previous generations,” the findings of the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health reveal. In addition, “many of the nearly 2,700 respondents…believe youngsters today have higher stress levels, less quality family time, and poorer coping skills and personal friendships.”
