Children becoming more anxious

‘New research shows that Australian children are becoming more anxious about themselves and the future of the planet.

The Australian Childhood Foundation survey of 600 children shows that more than half are scared there will not be enough water in the future.

The report also showed that more than a third of children were anxious about terrorism, were worried that one day they will have to fight in a war, and one in four believed the world will end before they reached adulthood.

The head of the foundation, Dr Joe Tucci, says this insecurity could have consequences for society.’
