WHAT IS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM FOR YOUNG PEOPLE TODAY? – Anxiety, due to the increased pressure to perform at school, in sports and also due to the pressure from social media, anxiety and stress are very high in teenagers. However, many teenagers do not know how to manage or deal with increased stress or anxiety. So it manifests in them until they are overwhelmed and consequently thrash or collapse. If more teenagers were educated on how to manage stress and anxiety, they would be calmer and more level-headed. They would be able to make more rational decisions and keep their anxiety to a minimum.
