NO GAIN WITHOUT PAIN!

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

An iPhone 11 in White (from here)

No parent intentionally allows harm to come to their children. No parent willfully neglects their offspring…but their ignorance can cause irreversible changes that affect kids’ brains. Parents can control those changes. Namely, are you managing your kids’ use of electronic devices?

Well-documented research demonstrates that when kids are exposed to extensive use of smart phones, tablets, computer internet, social media, video games, TV and other electronics, their developing brains are short-circuited, sometimes permanently. Certainly, that isn’t something you would purposely allow.

Disconnected: How to Reconnect Our Digitally Distracted Kids documents the research of Thomas Kersting, a high school counselor and therapist. Starting in 2009, his committee began receiving referrals for students newly diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Actual ADHD is usually diagnosed in children beginning at age five with the average age of diagnosis being eight years old. But these…

    I began sending twitters of my posts this past year to various news columnists, Government legislators, and Religious leaders.

    Frankly, my blog readers, followers, and hits, along with Alexa ratings have significantly increased, I believe because of my use of twitter.

    Whether or not my messages have “sowed” any results, who knows?

    However, King Solomon had a verse of advice.

    Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let your hands not be idle, for you do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well. (Ecclesiastes 11:6)

    Regards and goodwill blogging.

  2. Per social media, I got a twitter account pretty recently.
    It hasn’t improved my life any.
    There really are some horrible, toxic people in this world….
    and I don’t like the person I become when I attempt to communicate with them.
    Most of them hate Melania with a passion.
    What on earth did Melania do?!?

      I got Twitter and Facebook accounts that I use to steer people to a website I administer. I don’t like either venue, but I understand why Trump uses Twitter.

      I think the secret to Twitter and Facebook is to say what you have to say. Use them for a specific purpose. Otherwise, find better things to do. Since the companies that run those tools cannot be trusted, it is not worth the trouble to become too invested in them.

  3. Good write-up, Citizen Tom and very true.
    Our internet is early 90s level up here on the mountain, so we can’t stream very well and the internet is sporadic. The boys hate that, but I’m sure it’s better for them.
    They were never into social media (FB, and all that) though, I think it’s worse for young girls with the social pressures there.
    I just started another good book on this subject, entitled “Deep Work” by Cal Newport.

      I have two girls that we raised without TV or an abundance of electronics. My lady insisted on it. I think the absence of those things better prepared them to deal with them. Counterintuitive? Maybe, but TV and computers can become crutches, things we are dependent upon instead of mechanical aids that help us.
