Our kids’ innocence the priority (Alwyn Poole)

summarised by The Centrist

The increasing number of anti-depressants being prescribed to children and teens in New Zealand is concerning, says Alwyn Poole. This reflects a need for better mental health support. 

Society has amplified tragedy and victimhood, driven by politics and sensationalised by our media, leading to an overwhelming sense of hopelessness.

It’s crucial for adults in New Zealand to protect our children’s innocence, allowing them to experience a proper childhood, shielding them from the burdens and problems of the adult world, including adult discussions, politics, and ideological conflicts that children are not equipped to handle or make a difference in.
