🔊 Listen to Raising Teens: School Stress on BBC Sounds

News media report that children are suffering from unprecedented levels of stress when it comes to school – exam pressure, not enough “downtime” (homework, social media) and lack of sleep are cited as causes. This has led to a huge rise in mental health issues in teens.
