Why Is My Kid So Stressed?

Is teen life really that stressful? Are adults over-diagnosing teen "anxiety?"

On this episode of JSerra's very own podcast, Plugged In, host Pat Reidy has an insightful conversation with veteran teen therapist and speaker, Mary Naimie. Mary gives us the real scoop on today's teen pressures, discusses their legitimacy, and suggests ways parents can navigate a whole new adolescent world.
