Posted on July 7, 2021 04:22 pm

Distress, Disconnect, Depression  - Emotions Expressed Recently by Teenagers in Response to the Miami High-Rise Tragedy, Youth Expert Shares Healing Tips for Parents.  Let's take ownership of the fact that the pandemic, the latest Delta variant, and the increase in recent mass shootings around the country has definitely created some major worries among teens and their families in the realm of mental health.  The Guardian and The CDC highly recommend doing Quality Check-Ups on your Teens Mental Health daily/weekly.  For example, utilize the #1 Key Connection Source -- Communication!  

The Guardian.com Highly recommends, during stressful times like these, please put the Cell-Phones down, and engage in a truthful heart to heart conversation with your teenager or child. Today, many teens feel trapped inside their own stressful mental walls and exude a lack of Emotional Freedom. Considering the pandemic's uncertainties, violence among people, tragedies daily in our world enhances one's Stress. Communication also gives parents and/or guardians the opportunity to identify: Changes in eating & sleeping patterns, chatter about giving up on life, and a lack of interest in sport activities or hanging out with friends.

In an interview Stacey can share the following:

1} Listen Effectively: Parents should listen and encourage teens that they are a trustworthy source to lean on during tough times. Also, parents should  tune-up their "discernment" skills to uncover the emotional trouble zones inside their Teens minds.  Fear is usually the #1 factor for much of the distress per the CDC.

2} Communicate Compassionately: Parents need to be willing to express their own concerns about the recent traumatic events amid {COVID-19}. However, quickly follow-up with HOPE for the future. Parents can become a KEY Source for renewing Optimism among their teens and children.

3} Parenting Partnerships: Since Social-Media has become the iconic medium that holds teens' attention, Parents can do a meticulous job by Monitoring the Social-Media platforms used by their teenagers.... This will help to create a healthier approach to mental-mindfulness and avoid a FULL disconnect from the outside world.

4} The CDC HIGHLY discourages TEENS with the use of  Alcohol, Opioids, Violence, Drinking while Driving and Texting while Driving during these stressful times. A calmer approach is Recommended to build on HOPE for a brighter future!

America's Teenagers Have Gone 'Gusto for Gaming' says, the Guardian, Youth Specialist Stacey Spencer Shares Healthy Learning Alternatives for Summer

Posted on June 24, 2021 03:33 pm

America's Teenagers Have Gone 'Gusto for Gaming' reports say, by the Guardian.com.  Although the Video Gaming Industry has been a multi-billion dollar industry for the past 10 year, there's nothing that matches last year's interest plus sales among teens, parents, and even politicians that looked to that industry for solace in mind, body and soul amid {COVID-19}.  Let's face it, the pandemic has contributed a massive amount of emotional stress with Isolation, Depression, and Anxiety among ALL teens. The Most Popular Gaming Platforms during the initial run of the pandemic was the Nintendo Switch & PlayStation{5}. So how does all of this gaming divert, diminish, and possibly enhance the mental health of our nation's teenagers? Youth Specialist Will Share Alternatives ~

Secondly, let's NOT forget the primary role of Social Media: SnapChat, Tik Tok, FB, Twitter, and the list goes on and on.  These social media wonders have become the major competitors against parents, teachers, and guardians who vie for the quality time needed with their young person. These social media vehicles kept a connection between teens and their outside world in 2020. How do parents create a healthy balance between school work, gaming, and filtering through the negative emotions of stress during the transitions of the pandemic?

"Communication is still the #1 KEY source for Parents and Teens to Utilize during the Summer-Break and Pandemic Transitions"

In an Interview Stacey will share the following:
 
1} Cognitive Challenge: Encourage your teens to get involved with a Book Club, Debate Team, Art Class at the local YMCA or another creative endeavor that they can embark upon Online or on-location, outside the frenzy of Gaming!

2} Moving Challenge: Walking Club, Cycling Group, and even the good old fashioned Rollerblading. Activity outside the home will diminish so many hours of Gaming in front of a TV/Computer, and benefit their health as well.

3} Volunteer Challenge: Senior-Living facilities, Candy striper for the Hospitals, Reading to Children via your local library etc...
This creates a sense of purpose and dispels the feelings of unworthiness during the Summer months and stressful emotions amid the pandemic.
 
4} The CDC highly discourages the use of Alcohol, Opioids, Violence, Drinking while Driving and Texting while Driving during this time. All stimulate a level of Depression as we hopefully enjoy the Summer months amid the pandemic.

Moodiness, Mental Health Meltdowns, and the feelings of Melancholy among our Teens

Posted on June 9, 2021 06:15 pm

MEDIA ALERT 06.09.21: Moodiness, Mental Health Meltdowns, and the feelings of Melancholy among our Teens --  One Thought of "Saving" Grace per the CDC is Music, Movement and Mental Mindfulness, Youth Specialist Shares Conversation Starters - INTERVIEWS/ZOOM AVAILABLE -

The world of teaching has vastly changed, whether it is fully virtual, partially in person or at school with social distancing, masks and even partial vaccinations. We are all trying to do what is best to keep our children safe. The emotional safety of our young is exactly most important, especially during the Summer months.

Summertime is upon us, and that means break-time for most youth and young adults. How do Parents and Teens move forward with confidence that a brighter future is ahead. Commitment, Communication, Compassion, Cohesiveness and Conversation.  Communication is the #1 Key Source per the CDC. Today, teenagers and adults are stressed and depressed with so much uncertainty in our world. How do we keep our young people focused for a bright and hopeful future?

In an interview Stacey can share the following:

1} Parents should encourage teens to engage in vibrant and inspirational conversations outside the daunting news stories of the day. A creative mindset helps to eliminate feelings of depression and uncertainty per the CDC.

2} Include music, movement and exercise into your daily routine. Keep active with a group of friends or family members, if possible.  Suggestions may include: Jogging, Zumba, Biking, taking an Art Class for the Summer, and even learn to Roller-Blade....

3} Treat Yourself Sweetly.  Share a sweet treat, like gelato, with a neighbor, visit with friends and even Zoom with someone you have NOT seen in a while, especially if you're in two different states or countries.  

4} Finally, Communicate Every day in order NOT to isolate yourself amid the pandemic and summer.  No matter what you're feeling, verbalize the emotion to someone you trust.  Isolation leads to desolation.
