Violence is increasing in pediatric psych units
This is the sad state of affairs that our children are living in.
This is a product of many things. The pandemic was just the icing on the cake. We have generations of people who have children that they are unable to parent. Lack of attachment, love, stability. Children end up at school where they are fed yet another line of thinking and brain washing by the powers that be in public education. Those who failed them and locked them down to virtual learning during the pandemic. They seek out comfort and solace from social media, peer groups ant school, and they all exhibit the same defiant behaviors. Parents are not mentally equipped to be able to handle the emotional unstable child, and they land in the ER and inpatient hospital units. And they seek comraderie from other unwell peers who lead this type of revolt.
Children. Our most precious asset and gift on the planet. We have failed them.
