A new book is subtitled “why screens are making your teenager depressed, anxious, and prone to lifelong addictive illnesses - and how to stop it now.”
Their bodies move before their brains - they act before they think. Is that lack of impulse control a hallmark of ADHD? Or just being a normal kid? And what, if anything, can you can do to help them along?
You’ve fetched the fuzzy slippers. You’ve laid out the flannel jammies. You’ve warmed up the Milo. But if you really want to set your child up for a good night’s sleep, there’s one more bedtime accessory you might need to consider.
Tears, tummy-aches, tantrums on Monday morning are tough for parents to handle. But they’re even harder on kids suffering from anxiety at back-to-school time.
