Britain’s young people admit to feeling “stressed” for almost five hours a day, according to a new report published today for National Anti-Bullying Week.
It revealed that 12-18-year olds are exposed to a number of worries and fears on a daily basis, including having too much homework, potentially being laughed at for what they are wearing and ‘just not fitting in’. Additional worries include having to stand up in front of the class and talk, missing a homework deadline and having spots.
Sea Cadets commissioned the study to highlight the issues young people face and how they can get support, said: “There will be millions of people out there who can sympathise with the stresses and worries that teenagers face. Whether it’s bullying, their education or even both, it’s enough to make a young adult feel isolated at school."
