WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE ADOLESCENTS FACE TODAY? – Anxiety, due to increased pressure to perform well in school, athletics, and also due to pressure from social media, anxiety and stress levels are very high among teenagers. However, many teens don’t know how to deal with high levels of stress or anxiety. Thus, it manifests within them until they are overwhelmed and, as a result, go wild or collapse. If more teenagers were educated on how to manage stress and anxiety, they would be calmer and more balanced. They would be able to make more rational decisions and reduce their anxiety to a minimum.
