An article in USA Today reported on a study that found one in 12 teens deliberately harm themselves, but 90 percent give up the behavior by the time they're young adults.

As usual, I do have thoughts about this. First, I do believe so many of our teens feel very stressed. We have so many stresses - emotional, academic, and environmental. The environmental stresses are becoming monumental with toxins, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, broken families, cyberbullying, noise pollution, light pollution, lack of nature... :-(
