TECHNOLOGY 2 – Most people would agree that overeating can be dangerous to your health, but what about overindulging on digital “food?” Trace Embry looks into that today on License To Parent.
Cell phones, iPads, and video games are just a few of the digital devices that keep kids entertained literally around the clock. But, brain science is confirming that much of our kids’ behavioral problems actually stem from a “re-wiring” that takes place in their brains from overexposure to digital stimuli. You may think that Junior is stowed away safely in his room and not running the streets trashing his brain with drugs and alcohol, but what about the brain damage taking place because Junior can’t seem to unplug? Monitoring and limiting his access to digital technology is a must. More outside amusement is certainly a plus; and requiring more household responsibilities will be a win/win for both of you!
