The ground will shake
Anxiety swallows all but none,
Some may see a deep dark pit as their fear, but most of the time that over reaction is just anxiety. So readers beware you're in for a scare. Anxiety is evil, but with calm tendering hands we can snuff out the rouge fire. The storm may rattle and shake but there is always a rainbow at the end of every road, unless you have anxiety because it is a dark hole to Tartarus that even Percy Jackson can't face especially in middle school, girls, and why it happens.
Kids in general in middle school are stressed which leads to anxiety which leads to another can of issues like diabetes, asthma, and other repertory diseases. " Children spend over 1100 hours each year in school and while every child encounters the occasional challenge during the school day, for children with anxiety disorders or worries, managing the challenges of the day can be an exhausting endeavor in and of itself." According to worrywisekids.org. This matters because children with anxiety see the day as either really good, or really, really bad for them and they can go through their whole life thinking that their school experience was the worst thing to ever happen and can lead to a generation grown to resent the educational system. Also, “No matter what our goals are, we all struggle with a tremendous amount of stress and pressure.” On http://www.pamf.org/teen/life/stress/academicpressure.html. However, people think that kids with stress do much better in life, but the effects that too much stress has on the younger generation, the generation where it is NOT okay to make your child feel like they are a loser, because they aren't.
Girls ages 11-14 is the worst period of time for girls with anxiety. Yes, yes we all know that girls can be exceptionally dramatic and emotional but anxiety is much more serious for girls, and they can face a higher risk for emotional breakdowns. According to Alex on http://www.familyeducation.com/life/teen-stress/recognizing-effects-stress-girls “The second I get home from school I start my homework and I work nonstop until dinnertime. I get headaches so much and I feel sick. And still, I have to go to middle school. And then I have to go to high school. And then I have to go to college”. Girls are the most emotional branch of the species but they are still prone to anxiety more than most boys in middle school. “Youth of all ages, but especially younger children, may find it difficult to recognize and verbalize when they are experiencing stress. For children, stress can manifest itself through changes in behavior.” As stated on http://www.apa.org/helpcenter/stress-children.aspx. This shows that stress in kids, especially girls can be hard to get accros. Girls who are prone to anxiety is usually considered to be just a melodramatic fear where it can be really serious.
What causes stress? Hmm, what deep dark fear has been unearthed to cause a horrid disease? "For example, you might get very stressed about a test, but your friend might feel fine” according to http://girlshealth.gov/feelings/stressed/index.html . Your sister might think moving is terrifying, but you may think it's exciting. There are no right or wrong things to stress over. You never know where it will strike but it does happen to most people and there is no right stress." As shown on girlsheath.org. Stress causes are important because if you can find the cause then you might be able to find a cure from the rubble that comes after a fall. On the website kqed.org "A little stress is a good thing," Alvord says. "It can motivate students to be organized. Then again, it also leads to many more mental health issues in the life of that child."
In conclusion anxiety can, no will swallow you whole like the moon swallowing the sun, or Dark stalker giving the Last Prophecy so don't let the diseases of the middle class get to you and face it. If you discuss a child's problems PRIAVTELY then you can help them out too instead of just letting them sit there alone in the dark. Once again to have anxiety is like a dark prophecy from the Pyrathis kingdom that is worse than even a dark stalker dragon can claim.
*The kingdom of Pyrathis belongs to the Wings of Fire saga. So do all the dragons*
