The effects of stress in families on children and on youth growing up in Ontario. A report card on the present generation of children: their mental health, school achievement, and control of aggression with some statistics. Manifestations of stress. The predictable effects of poor outcomes for children and youth on Canadian society and our economy in the future. Why children and youth are experiencing so much stress. Major causes of family stress. Looking at contributing factors over the last 10 years. What we need to do to produce a generation of healthy, competent, productive children. What can society do about family stress and its consequences? Suggestions which include contributions from a number of different societal levels: the family, the workplace, the community, mainstream services and specialised services, and government. The African proverb "it takes a whole village to raise a child." What that means, and what it could mean for our society.
