Don't listen to us

In a world where everything is available all the time, we have come up with an expression of the fear of missing something - Fomo (Fear of Missing Out). In a constant flow of information (at a speed I doubt, it is created for our brains), it is no wonder that we are tricked into believing that various life weights pass us by. There is certainly something basic human in it - we have always wanted to be part of the group (for survival) and had to be part of a context. It is probably not very difficult to create this anxiety in man - everyone wants to be a part of something.

I think this is one of the biggest challenges parents/adults today. Managing something man (to some extent) cannot affect at all. It is not even possible and we are all new to it. We can still only guess the consequences it has.Acceptance is thus necessary, if you do not make an active choice and settle in a place where there is no. And fear rarely leads to something constructive, so how do we control right? How do we live with something that most of us often wonder if it is the least healthy ..?

It is so very easy to end up in reassuring platitudes that you as a parent should be in control, introduce screen time, set a good example, etc. But how often do you not get stuck there - in some kind of situation that does not really hold, for “all Others get .. ”?To be honest, we (adults) have created a rather ambiguous world. On the one hand, there has never been so much anti -bullying, talk about mental illness and more as today. On the other hand, we have created an environment where everything can happen to everyone - around the clock. We have completely unfiltered taken in things we absolutely not can Check in the children's bedroom.Of course, we have given them an anxiety - increased the feeling of not being enough, not being able to participate, not knowing what applies. I think we have to dare to say it loudly. If we even be able to handle it, we must at least try to see what we do.

However, I strongly believe in the new generations' clarity. In a conversation with a bunch of 15-year-olds, it became very clear to me that they strongly question what social media has become and what it could possibly do with their brains. Insight I at the same age (in the 90s) did not have at all; Around what we were exposed to then.

So perhaps the Internet's entry has also contributed to the sharpness needed to at all be able to Navigate in it ..?
