Gina Stepp's curator insight, June 13, 2013 5:38 PM

Contrary to popular belief, genuine suicide attempts shouldn't be seen as a call for help or a manipulative act. Rather, the researchers found that "Of all motivations for suicide, the two found to be universal in all participants were hopelessness and overwhelming emotional pain."

Jason Chalangary's curator insight, May 30, 2014 6:01 AM

Fresh-Air Parenting

The Meitiv case has spawned a frenzied, widespread showdown between proponents of the "free-range parenting" movement, which encourages independence in children and allows them the sorts of liberties that were common a generation ago, and the more hands-on style of "helicopter parenting" that's become so prevalent in recent years. It also raises the perennial and perplexing question: just how much supervision do children need?

Parental Time Pressure is Associated with Child and Adolescent Mental Health

Parental Time Pressure is Associated with Child and Adolescent Mental Health | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
A doctoral thesis has found a link between parental time pressure and child and adolescent mental health.
Lon Woodbury's insight:

Our rapidly changing style of living probably contributes to this possible impact:  Two-parent incomes, more mothers in the work force, the economy, expansion of day-care, etc. all have an impact on this and should be looked at for possible negative influences on the children.  If so, a full public discussion about how to find ways to balance those negative effects must be looked for.  We can't go back to the way it was, but this indicates something the children need has been lost and we must find ways to restore what is missing. -Lon

Science Just Discovered Something Amazing About What Childhood Piano Lessons Did to You

Science Just Discovered Something Amazing About What Childhood Piano Lessons Did to You | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
If your parents forced you to practice your scales by saying it would "build character," they were onto something. The Washington Post reports that one of the largest scientific studies into music's effect on the brain has found something striking: Musical training doesn't just affect your musical ability — it provides tremendous benefits to children's emotional and behavioral maturation. The study by the University of Vermont College of Medicine found that even those who never made it past nursery rhyme songs and do-re-mi's likely received some major developmental benefits just from playing. The study provides even more evidence as to why providing children with high-quality music education may be one of the [...]

I especially liked the observation that schools that deprive most of their students of studying music or the arts are depriving them of much more than simply not learning an instrument - it is depriving them of a good way to developed executive function for one thing. -Lon

Can Parental Overvaluing Create Narcissistic Kids? | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Parental overvaluing is a clinical term referring to faulty perceptions that some parents develop about their children.
Lon Woodbury's insight:

It is amazing the change in many parents attitudes.  For example, once, when a child got into trouble at school he/she got into trouble at home (adults working together for the good of the child).  Now, many times when a child gets into trouble at school the parents attack the school (adults being divided on what is good for the kids).  Not healthy on many levels. -Lon

Parents always want whats good for their children, but somehow we collectively got the idea that OUR child can only go to the best University, can never do wrong so the teachers are picking on them, and the self-esteem movement, plus probably all kinds of other similar expectations and protections of our children has wound up putting tremendous pressure on them.  Not healthy. -Lon

For some parents, search for better schools could lead to jail | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Just over a year ago, Hamlet Garcia climbed up the steps of a stately courthouse in Norristown, Pa., wondering how much longer he would be free.
Lon Woodbury's insight:

This reminds me of the "good old days" when school districts used scarce education money to hire truant officers who tracked down students skipping school and busting them "for their own good.,"  Now in some jurisdictions we have "education theft" - hiring officials from scarce education money to make a case so parents can be charged for trying to get their children a good education by enrolling them in a district where they do not live.  I'm sure glad I work in private education where violence or threat of violence is the primary reason for using police authorty and live in Idaho where "education theft" like this is not an issue. -Lon
