  1. Most of us know this firsthand either cause we saw it or experienced. I’m 32, and basically all the kids I hung out with Jr high had adverse effects from unstable homes. My high school we were all just single family, barely divorced parents went to college etc. Jr high friends are a mess and I had to honestly stop hanging out with them cause I couldn’t relate with their struggles in adulthood after a certain point, versus being a kid it all seemed fine. Some of those kids are straight up dead now, they never saw adulthood. Xanax hit the community hard.
