An institute surveyed teens post pandemic and compared the results with identical questions in a 2018 survey. Fewer teens were desperately lonely, the number of teens saying they were depressed was down, their overall satisfaction with life was just slightly lower. The factors that seem to be working in teens favor is more sleep at more appropriate times given their circadian rhythms, more family interaction, similar time using technology, but less time using social media. They also having to face difficulties and adaptions, felt more empowered over their own lives.


(I said this all comes as a surprise. If you don't agree, don't kill the messenger. Also results were not so good for adults.)

This is surprising. I guess I can believe teens might be the same but I can‘t believe their mental health is better during Covid. That is impossible to believe.

It seems that kids are experiencing what it was like to grow up in the 70s 80s 90s and early 2000s.

Not surprising at all. Most of these kids are much more resilient than we give them credit for. They're looking at us and wondering why we're freaking out.

"Post pandemic"? still a long ways away. More cases today then ever worldwide. Any experts guessing on what it tops out at?

This article conflicts with what I and my friends are seeing with our teen kids, who are all having a hard time, so I read the full article and the full underlying survey. It is flawed for several reasons.
1) the 2020 survey is from May 29-July 3. It doesn’t at all reflect the ongoing reality of the last 3 months since school started (or rather the week by week uncertainty the school system is putting our kids through). Yes, early summer was the highlight for our family and many others, when school ended and the weather improved and the kids got to relax a bit with no demands and more sleep.
2) the 2018 survey was not the same group of teens, and more importantly done in March, which is teen students more stressful time of the year

So, please don’t put faith in the rosy picture this article paints. It is largely false and doesn’t represent the incredibly stressful situation our students are now in with school systems that are failing them.

Great analysis of another silly headline. Yes, our kids loved the last few months of the last school year. Big surprise, they had no school. Since summer ended, not so much. Reality is setting in with the teens now.

Another foolish SDSU "study" that is wholly unscientific.

We dont give enough credit to a future generation. These folks are quite tougher than we think about em.

I lead a group of 1300 parents desperately fighting to open our schools. I get messages and phone calls every day with sad , sad stories of how their children are suffering.

I also want to add how ridiculously poor the education is in my area.
This past week our school district started allowing kids into the school for their "hybrid" plan. (Kids will see 14 days total inside their school for semester 1 -- if we don't close again).

There are no more than 5 kids per class. Everyone is masked up. Kids are 6' apart.

The rest of the kids are Zooming the class from home.

In MOST instances, the teacher isn't even in the classroom -- a huge percentage of our teachers have gotten "waivers" of some sort to not be in the classroom. It's a paraprofessional in the classroom "babysitting".

Most parents are screaming "why bother". What's the point of going to school if there is no live teacher and they can't even interact with their friends.

Also - I had one parent contact me with this story: Their child had an actual teacher in the classroom. The student approached the teacher w/a question & the teacher said "Back off!". If everyone is masked up, and there are only 5 kids, is it THAT dangerous? At this point, it's just laughable when you see the rest of the country going back to their jobs & somehow succeeding and making it work.

Many parents where I live believe the schools are making this so awful so that kids choose to stay remote & then guess what, the teachers union "wins"

Is this year school children going to be label as a loss generations. All parents cannot afford to send their children/students to private schools. IMHO.

It’s not a lost generation , as a good amount of America’s kids are back in school . It’s only a loss for the kids who happen to live in states Or areas where the adults are making the decision to keep the schools shut .

This wholesale condemnation of teachers is offensive. As all of you know, socially contentious topics are not permitted on TUG. If you want this thread to stay open, tone down the finger pointing.
