Why The Kids Aren’t Alright ft. Abigail Shrier

Kids and teens used to look forward to the day they could get their license, move out of the house, and start their lives — but somewhere during the last decade, something shifted. The once independent, driven kids we used to see are now bogged down with depression, anxiety, and fear. So, for a generation that’s never experienced a World War or Great Depression, why are today’s kids unprecedentedly unwell when it comes to mental health?


Best-selling author of the new book, ‘Bad Therapy,’ Abigail Shrier weighs in on why the problem with our kids may be how parents are raising them — as medication and therapy replace parenting and kids are taught happiness and comfort are more important than strength, taking on challenges, and gaining confidence to go for their goals.
