Wisdom comes from the written word. But what about the spoken word?
Thanks to digital technology, for the first time in history, the spoken word is consumed more than the written word.
The Age of Influencers
Most of it is online where anyone of any age now has their own platform to speak their own spin on the truth to the masses.
Now, this has profound implications for our kids because much of this new spoken word is now coming from other kids on social media, Youtube, and other internet outlets.
In the past, by and large, the written word has always been produced by adults and usually includes more experienced people with more seasoned and qualified content. It is also most often vetted by a publisher.
So keep all of this in mind when considering wise limits and accountability with respect to what and/or who our kids are being influenced by on the net.
