Episode #3: How Technology Effects Children Socially

Texting and social media can be amazing tools, but with them comes amazing responsibility for parents. We live in the most “connected” society that has every been.  And yet, rates of depression and suicide have risen greatly.  Communication and connection are not the same thing.  As humans we have an innate  need for true human connection which means; I see you, I hear you, I understand you.  Our children can greatly suffer from this pseudo sense of connection unless we as parents are informed and intentionally give them lives full of rich, true connections.
