Clearly somebody was about to run a story about de Blasio daughter Chiara having drug and alcohol problems because the de Blasio people just released this video:
It's an important video, no matter what the reason the de Blasio people had to go up with it now.
Wouldn't it be nice if Mayor Bill de Blasio used the experience his daughter has had with depression and alcohol/drug use to provide schools the supports they need to help other children who suffer from the same problems?
I have seen a sharp increase in kids suffering from cutting (as in self-harm), drug and/or alcohol use, depression, eating disorders and other emotional issues in these past few years.
Schools need the social and emotional supports to help students, not only the one's suffering from these issues, but for all students, so that they can learn healthy ways to deal with the stresses of modern life (especially in the Common Core Era.)
I'll have more on this later.
