In the United States today, there are over 8 million children experiencing daily anxiety, and approximately 2 million children who refused to go to school this morning due to anxiety, fear, and related emotional and behavioral challenges.  Dr. Villiers refers to this latter group as a generation of “children in hiding,” where anxiety and fear have “created a mass exodus of kids escaping the social and academic pressures of school to the cocoon of safety of the home and the computer.”  In a recent interview on Allen Cardoza’s Answers for the Family (, broadcast on LA Talk Radio, Dr. Villiers talked about why our children are experiencing this epidemic of anxiety now, how we can identify when it becomes a problem, and what we can do to help.
