“What? You’re Not Depressed?”

We were talking with a friend of the NOR who sends his teenage child to a posh private high school. Our friend was shocked to learn from the principal that some 50 percent of the students are on prescription anti-depressants. We were shocked too. After all, these kids have everything: the best education, the best clothes, frequent vacations to exotic places. Many drive to school in a BMW or Mercedes of their own. Many girls show up at school dances in sexually provocative dresses — obviously with parental approval. Parents even rent hotel suites for their kids to have drinking parties. Many of the kids are known to be “sexually active” and into drugs.
