Our Children Don’t Want to Live Under the New World Order
Dave Hodges/Activist Post
Growing up is filled with challenges, disappointments, excitement and anticipation of the future. Growing up should contain some measure of enjoyment and the self-satisfaction that the pride in our own personal growth can bring. However, for too many of our soon-to-be young adults, life is filled with misery, disappointment and a sense of hopelessness.
Society is responsible for providing an environment which fosters growth and the freedom to explore one’s limits. And for decades America produced children who surpassed the accomplishments and lifestyle of the previous generation. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. At one time in this country, parents formed the backbone for child development along with teachers and clergy. Today, the influences on our youth are not what they should be.
Today, where do these influences come from? A Gallup Poll from the late 1950s asked teens to rate their biggest influences on their attitudes and lives and they listed these variables in the following order:
1. Parents 2. Church 3. Teachers 4. Peers 5. Media
Fifty years later, this same survey produced the following results:
1 & 2. Peers and media were in a virtual tie 3. Parents 4. Teachers 5. Church
(information derived from a conference presentation on child safety sponsored by Arizona States in 2006).
Something Is Terribly Wrong
There are an estimated 8-25 attempted suicides for each suicide death. Therefore, the suicide rate is only small representation of the hopelessness being experienced by the younger generation. The misery index in this country for our young people is off the charts.
Since 1968, suicides for people aged 15-24 have risen over 300%. Suicide in now the second leading cause of death in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and many countries of Western Europe. Russia, Vietnam and India are experiencing similar increases.
What is the number one reason why teens are killing themselves? The straightforward and simple answer is that they have a foreboding sense of hopelessness. Life is bleak and meaningless; and all their cell phones, iPads and Xbox games can not fill the void of emptiness. Hopelessness is the number one predictor of suicide.
This Is Not the Way It Is Supposed To Be
Traditionally, when teens grow into adulthood, they begin to learn that they have a measure of control over their life. Through trial-and-error, teens gain knowledge and acquire the tools necessary to solve their problems in the best way that they can. In the past, when we felt hopeless, we pulled through our crises with the resources we had at our disposal and with the support from friends and family. Increasingly, that support has all but eroded.
