How do kids handle this season?

I have a nephew and a the son of friend who are die hard Cub fans.
Luckily the friend's son is out of the country for the summer but I seriously worry about psychological damage these kids are going through
I think it is much worse then when most of us where growing up , given
the non stop media  explosion so that they are going to listen to this
night and day. I know that  I am genuinely depressed about the season
To the point where it does effect my mood, sleep habits etc but for A child 14 or under ( or perhaps more) I think this may well be worse
no one is going to taunt me in school or mock me in little league
I really wonder about the long term effects on kids of being a Cub
fan at a time like this.  
I don't have any regrets at at comprerable time in my childhood the Cubs
Were actually worse with literally no memory of winning seasons but
it was different then. We are old enough to handle this but I really worry
about the kids
