According to recent studies, the loneliest generation in the US today is not the oldest Americans but the youngest, specifically young adults between 18 and 22 years old. The reality of the world we now live in has contributed to a crippling sense of anxiety and alienation in students across the country, but the question is what can we do to put a stop to it for the generations to come?
To speak more about this issue, I invited Florence Ann Romano on the show.
Florence, also known as the The Windy City Nanny™ is a dedicated philanthropist and former nanny who has always had a special place in her heart for children. Romano worked for over 15 years as a nanny. She shares her experiences in Nanny and Me, her debut book for children. Florence served as President and Founder of a nonprofit board dedicated to autism awareness and now serves on the Executive Board of the Children's Research Fund at Lurie's Children's Hospital.
During our conversation, Florence and I speak about how today's youth can find a sense of community in their social life, as well as find purpose and meaning in a competitive job market. She also shares some tip for parents who want to raise more conscious and connected children.
