Today’s children and teens are looking for affirmation and in the wrong places. Their self-esteem and self-confidence are on a downward spiral. Today, children and teens don’t see a need for a best friend when they have “Snapscores”, numbers of “Likes,” and numbers of “Followers.” Smartphones, Gaming and Social Media are the new norm for our youth. Do you feel like you live in a foreign culture when you communicate with your child/teen? You are not alone. Communication is a lost art, replaced by social media apps and gaming. Anxiety, Depression, Self-harm, Cyberbullying, Fear of Missing Out (FoMo), and Suicidal Thoughts are on the rise. Social Media and Gaming are now considered forms of addiction and mental disorders. The Digital Age is shaping who we are and what we think. Recognizing the impact of the Digital Age on our life, both now and in the future is a vital part of guiding, growing and preserving our family legacy.
