The race is on to develop better parenting skills, alongside technology, for the well-being of children, families and future generations.
With technology, children now have a new means to escape from face to face social interactions. The technological revolution will fundamentally alter the way we parent, live, work, and relate to one another, and children will need more resiliency and skills going into this new environment than ever before to succeed.
So, we need a more skilled, different type of parenting in the age of technology, with multiple levels of emotional support for children in the technological era because when children feel overwhelmed, scared, alone, or hurt early in their life, they have no choice but to find ways of adaptive behavior intellectually and emotionally to help them get through these times by either escaping, now with technology, or relying on themselves.
The signs of these ways of thinking, feeling and behaving are seen later in life when children are older, or moving into adulthood. They show up as concerning, unhealthy behaviors or emotional issues that are counterproductive to a positive, enjoyable life.
Much of traditional day-to-day parenting did not have any technology, and assumes that the child feels emotionally and mentally safe at home, and in their day to day life. It also assumes that the parents are up-to-date on child brain development and that they understand evidence-based parenting, but there is a huge gap in the tremendous information available scientifically, reaching good intentioned parents. This is where we help.
We always work with the parent-child relationship, because this relationship will have the greatest impact on the child’s future. We help children learn to trust themselves and their parents more fully and completely, and we share the best evidence-based information we have with parents, to help them succeed, with their children.
