10 Pressures Your Kids Are Facing

Nov 10, 2023 / General     

We like to think that kids have it easy—that their lives consist of nothing more than good, old-fashioned fun. But that couldn’t be further from the truth because each day your child faces huge amounts of pressure. They’re pressured to get perfect grades and be accepted into a good college. They’re pressured to “fit in.”  They’re pressured to have sex. They’re pressured to use drugs and drink alcohol.  They’re pressured to be the very best player on the team. While the list could go on and on, the bottom line is this: As parents, it is our job to prepare our children to face these pressures. Each day, remind your child that they’re a leader. That it’s good to be different…to stand up and stand strong. To do what’s right. Here is a list of pressures kids are facing. Remember, your Family First.
