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 (http://answers4thefamilyblog.com), 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.
