    CHARLOTTE, NC – This is the time of year when you and your teen might have increased anxiety because you are waiting to hear back from colleges.   Since our economy is in a weakened state with a tough job market and a fierce competition to get into a prestigious school, the levels of anticipation might become overwhelming.

Dr. Chris McCarthy, author of ‘Turnaround: Turning Fear into Freedom,’ talks about some suggestions to try and guide teens through this tough time.  He tells Charlotte Today that “Appalachian State, which is not even considered a top tier school like Duke, gets around 15,000 applications and only accepts 2,500.”

Dr. McCarthy also suggests presenting to your teens a variety of avenues for them to take in order to accomplish their goals as well as always instilling hope.
