In Taiwan the kids really envy Aussie kids. The Aussie kids look so carefree. So much time for sports and have the picture perfect instagram life.
It’s not what you think.
The teen depression and anxiety is at all time high. The bully sitituation is very common too. They have loads of assignments and sports commitments too. Social media doesn’t do any benefits to their already complicated friendship problems.
Often Kids with broken family (which is way too common) suffer emotional issues too. I always hear about teenagers drug and alcohol addictions which is totally unheard of in my era.
It must be so hard to be the modern day parents. You can’t be old fashion but you can’t let them do whatever they want either.
Some kids can be two faces. They are so good in front of me and turn around can be a total different person in front of their parents or peers.
I have no solution though. But these days I can tell if they are not in the right mental state straight away.
I can only try my best.
It’s a part of growing up I guess.
Let’s just enjoy my sukiyaki hot pot full of wayu beef and forget about them . Sometimes I am really mentally exhausted just hearing their problem. I need solid good quality meat to eat.
