Kids today are under a lot of pressure. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, anxiety is on the rise in middle and high school students. With all the academic worries, peer pressure, and pressure to fit in, more and more tweens and teenagers are being diagnosed with anxiety disorders.
Many of these children have to see therapists and take medication to deal with their anxiety. Thankfully, there may be a better solution for these children.
At American High School in Plantation, Florida, students complete all their work online and do not have to deal with the same issues and concerns students of traditional schools deal with. Here, students can work in a safe environment that is comfortable to them, without the pressures of impressing students or dealing with bullies. If your children are suffering from anxiety, why not give an online school a chance? You may find that your child blossoms.
