Understanding The Epidemic Of Struggling Young Adults

Understanding The Epidemic Of Struggling Young Adults

Understanding The Epidemic Of Struggling Young Adults

By: Josh White, MA, LCMHC, CGPPosted: Section: Featured Articles

It can be difficult to relate with your teenager. It seems like it's harder to communicate for you and them, than it was for you and your own parents. This may not just be a coincidence. As it turns out, modernity has steadily eroded relationships between parents and teens, and this is done a number of ways.

Addiction

Nothing is more harmful to a teenager than you playing the white knight when a developing addiction is discovered. Really think about this critically. Has a teenager doing any substance had long enough to let that substance become a life-altering dominant force? Seven years is the longest anyone's a teenager. Many alcoholics have the condition for decades. Don't freak out too much if your teen becomes addicted, but at the same time refrain from encouraging that addiction. Research indicates addiction separates families.

Research also seems to indicate in this over-sexed, over-drugged world we live in, that alcohol's still one of the most dangerous substances out there. But alcohol is foisted on the millennial generation perhaps harder than ever before. One reason young adults experience failure to launch has to do with addictions like this, and either supportive or abusive homes. An enabler can enable through positive or negative reinforcement; and the modern mainstream media wants your child hoodwinked wither way--it makes them easier to control.

Failure To Launch

Part of the reason young adults are failing to launch today is addiction, but a lot more dire than addiction the modern style of upbringing which, again, has been foisted across the populace by the mainstream media. Sex, drugs, rock and roll--where have you heard of these before? What is the point of life in America, but getting a job good enough to allow you unlimited weekend partying in conjunction with enough of a slush fund to pay for damages? That's what "making" it is today. Truly, that isn't what life is; but did you know better when you were a teenager? How can you expect them to? Telling teens the truth of their situation won't turn their stubborn heads, either; just like you, they have to find out for themselves. 

Get Help

Sometimes what they need is an experienced professional to teach your teen mindfulness in their life choices. You can't control their mind, but they can. Teach them to transcend the lies of modernity, and see them launch into a bright future. For 24-hour admissions assistance, please call 855-998-5272
