Hell yeah.

And let their teachers have a say in what might be wrong with the parents, too.

Parents creating an artificial bubble around their children leads to psychological problems on the part of the child dealing with reality?

Color me shocked.

For instance, a parent assigned to SPACE gradually reduced the dozens of text messages a day they sent their child to two or three.

Probably one of the advantages of being an older parent. Back in my day there was just a pay phone by the principal's office and even then there was no guarantee at all that you'd be able to get a hold of your mother or father at work.

Text messages.  Sheesh. You'll live, I promise.

I didn't read the f****** article but I'm guessing the parents are called "the major cause of the anxiety"

Dozens of text messages? A day?

Christ, I barely text my kids. Maybe 2-3 times a week.

Must mean I'm a good parent!

It's more about enabling rather than addressing anxiety problems. Basically it turns out that failing to equip your kids for adulthood makes it much harder for them to thrive in adulthood. It's not a bad article if you get a couple minutes...

Half the time at least I think the parents are causing the anxiety by being anxious and hyperdramatic all the time and saying all kinds of anxiety inducing things about adult subjects kids can't really understand or process in front of kids, and exposing kids to anxiety inducing media. And generally acting like the kid is going to die if they ever get ten feet away from their parent. There's a weird attitude of 'Braylyn will BE RAPED TO DEATH BY PEDOPHILES IF ALLOWED OUTSIDE AND I CAN NEVER LEAVE THEM ALONE BECAUSE THEY ARE SO PRECIOUS AND DEFENSELESS' and also 'I am going to loudly talk about all my relationship and sex life problems and financial problems in front of Braylyn because why not, they can handle it, it's good for them to learn about reality'.

Children can't handle the emotional issues being dumped on them, while being treated in every other way like permanent children who are never taught independence skills. It puts them in a situation where they're helpless to change what's happening around them, but must be passive receivers of all this disturbing information and problems and awareness of other people's emotional distress. Add in the need to be constantly perfect because social media captures your humiliation and mistakes forever making every social situation potentially far more dangerous and you have conditions for an anxiety storm.
