What do you remember doing at that age? Me, it was girls, experimenting with altered states of consciousness(sometimes to the point of
unconsciousness), mowing lawns and shoveling snow for pocket change, girls, playing war and manhunt, hunting, playing hockey, martial arts, hunting,
and trying to fit in some schoolwork in there. Maybe we were just way too busy to go on rampages? I know I thought about going on rampages a few

To be honest I just do not see the stressors that people say kids have today. I think it is that we are raising kids on extreme ends.
1. The bubble boy: Many kids go through life now that are told they are the best and one day they find out they are not the best. Very little parental
control and the kids can never do wrong. I really keep my kids firm on the earth, when they suck I let them know it and when they do good I do the
same. Also my wife does not work and we have full parental involvement in all aspects of my kid’s life. I think in this scenario we find the high
use of prescription meds in kids.
2. Kids raising kids: I see this a lot today, both parents work and the, as example: ten, eight and four year old are alone in the house every night.
No one there until later and it shows. This is how kids can build pipe bombs in their garage and dad never knows, and people ask how can that
3. The true dysfunctional, monsters creating monsters: This is also on the rise where the family is truly broken and that can turn kids into monsters.
In the first two scenarios the family does not necessary need to also be dysfunctional.
