As children, adolescents and teens, we have all been exposed to some pretty disturbing and upsetting experiences. Experts concur that these experiences can and will influence our adult years and can be the source of future unhappiness. Today's children, have never been taught how to deal with the adverse or dark side of life. They have no idea how to deal with stress, anxiety, fear, bullying, rejection, grief or loss. Most adults don't know either. Children under stress and anxiety have a hard time learning, because the stress energy interferes and dramatically decreases their ability to study and absorb information. That stress energy can also create conditions such as ADHD, learning disorders, depression and bad behavior.
