“No one cares about me.”
“I haven’t felt happy for a long time.”
“I don’t want to live anymore.”If you have heard your child utter these words, your fear for their well-being has skyrocketed. But what can you do to help them?
Some experts say that depression and anxiety are the new normal. Suicide is the second leading cause of death in young people. As parents, we cannot accept this. Many young people feel helpless and hopeless. Our kids must be equipped with more than resilience and positivity. They need hope. Hope for a future. Along with her daughter Kendra, parent and family educator Lori Wildenberg encourages you to take the practical ways offered in Messy Hope to foster necessary hope growth in your children’s hearts. Help them overcome depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideation to experience a hope-filled life.
