Losing our children to Youtube

On average American kids 8-18 years old are spending 53 hours a week on digital media, with the majority of that time being spent on Youtube. By contrast, only about 6% of kids are spending time outdoors on their own accord. Things like fishing, swimming, catching lightning bug, putting frogs in jars, pick-up games of baseball or basketball, and star gazing are practically left to the distant memories of the previous two or three generations. Exploration of the natural world and creating stories together with childhood friends has changed to vicariously exploring the wild west of Youtube and posting the stories of others to share with anyone that follows their social media page. On top of this, parents are finding that their kids have lost track of normal time-oriented rhythms. Kids are mixing up their nights and days due to technology and they are finding it hard to function properly outside of the world of technology. No wonder an entire generation of parents feel like they are losing their children to Youtube.

HOW TO HELP CHILDREN WHO HAVE ADHD

This parent may often feel frustrated, overwhelmed and unsure of how to help the child who is struggling. The child may also feel that he never measures up to his parents’ standards, and he is constantly trying to do better. He may feel angry at himself that it takes him twice as long to do a task that would take his younger brother only a few minutes. It is a common misconception that a person with ADHD lacks intelligence. There have been many studies that have proved the opposite, that children with ADHD are often highly intelligent. According to an article in Psychology Today, a person with ADHD does not lack intelligence; however, he may lack the ability to best utilize his intelligence. The child with ADHD may not know that she also struggles with executive functioning, which makes it hard for her to plan ahead and to stay organized. Here are some tips to help a child who struggles with ADHD.

Never Underestimate the Power of a Timeout

We’ve all heard that cooler heads always prevail.  Only problem is it’s not always easy to keep a cool head.  Lucky for sports teams and families alike, we all have timeouts at our disposal.

Support Community Support

The days of it taking a village to raise a child may have lost some of its appeal these days, but the need for it in today’s community has not waned.  Never did that become more apparent to me than through observing a clear transformation at Lithia Springs High School several years ago where a new head coach came up with the brilliant idea of eliciting community support for a football program in desperate need of a resurrection.
