Helping your kids walk through a sea of choices by limiting their choices.
How does that actually help them?
Today’s kids find it hard to make important choices. This is largely because of all of the additional choices the cyber world now has to offer them. In the past giving a minor a choice was considered a privilege on the part of the minor. Today digital options are endless which is breeding entitlement, impatience, and narcissism.
This has made it so that in the backs of their minds, even after making a choice, kids stay poised to pounce on a better deal that might come along the pike later. They also feel entitled to exercise these options. However, this mentality can carry over to really important things later in life like marriage commitments. Putting limits on excessive options and digital time is key.
