Concerned that a phone has permanently attached itself to her hand?

Worried that your tween or teen’s brain is turning to mush because of the amount of screen time he is logging?

Whether it is snapping a selfie, sending a meme, watching YouTube or texting with friends, technology is a way of life for tweens and teens.

It can be scary because, as adults, we were not raised as natives in the digital world.

The ever-changing presence of technology and social media can cause a sense of unease. As parents and caring adults, we aren’t always certain if there is an effect on our children and what those effects are.

The reality is that technology is having an effect on your child and it is having an effect on you.

The effects of this constant use include:

● increasing distractibility

● higher levels of stress and anxiety

● aggression

● lack of sleep

● privacy concerns

● internet safety

● dropping grades

● isolation and withdrawal

The problem isn’t with technology.
The challenge is with the behavior.

You must equip yourself with the tools to
help your tween or teen to navigate the digital world.

The early adolescent years are an important period when your child can
learn essential communication and digital navigation skills to
support them now and throughout their life.
