Almost two-thirds (63%) of 10 and 11-year-olds says they worry ‘all the time’ about at least one thing to do with their school life, home life or themselves, a survey has found. Children’s charity Place2Be surveyed 705 Year 6 pupils (Primary 7 in Scotland) in England, Scotland and Wales and found that children’s biggest concerns were their family, friends being okay, and not doing well at school. The results were released to coincide with Children’s Mental Health Week.
Additionally, 2 in 5 children said that their worries get in the way of their schoolwork, and 30% said that when they start worrying they can’t stop.

Mindfulness should be taught and practiced daily as standard at schools...

For comparison, I'd like to see data from previous decades.
I'm sure children worrying about stuff isn't something new.
When my mum was in school they got to worry about nuclear missiles being launched.
Kids have always been bullied
From poverty
Affected by traumas
Worry about death
There's always something to worry about.

Although now there's the Internet, there's a whole new world of varieties of things to worry about.
