stress and opportunity

An interesting article on stress and coping in the young- do we expect too much from our young? Is giving too much choice and opportunity harmful? Are we making our kids sick? It' worth a read- especially if you have girls.

A snippet from the article...

The greater wealth and opportunities of the young actually translate into significantly higher rates of mental illness, a fact that no one seems to want to think about.
It rather calls into question the consensus assumption that affluence and university degrees should be everyone's main goal in life.
