ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI)- The drive for success is making children sick, according to research by Dr. Stuart Slavin, an associate dean for curriculum at Saint Louis University School of Medicine.
Slavin's research has found an 'unprecedented' level of anxiety among high school students. This high level of stress to succeed is eroding at student's health, instead of empowering them to thrive.
Dr. Slavin spoke with Fox 2 this morning to discuss what is causing this stress, and ways to keep your children successful without risking their health.
