Teens today are more isolated, anxious, and fragile. For parents, they often seem more complex and difficult to communicate with, if at all. This generation, also known as the "iGen" by Dr. Jean Twenge, "is growing up more slowly and more anxious from any generation in history."  Teens of today's world are also less resilient, less independent, and comparatively to previous generations, less prepared for adulthood.  

The data confirms what most already know, increased social media has led to alarming rates of social isolation, anxiety, and clinical depression. A variety of other reasons, known and unknown to parents may cause a pre/teen to be in crisis. This may manifest in poor academics, school refusal, behavioral missteps, low self-esteem, substance abuse, and/or withdrawal from family and friends.
