I got to participate in a 2 part segment this week focusing on when it’s “too much, too soon?” Michelle Miller, of CBS, interviewed middle schoolers and freshmen in Hackensack and talked about digital media, dating and sex. The candid responses of the kids involved are terrific and really do shed some light on how bombarded our kids are with different things, and how they often do not know how to manage their information overload.
Below are the links for the segments:
The take home message here is that communication needs to happen at home, and happen often and early. The more you impart your values onto your children, the more they will begin to understand and identify their own values. You will more likely, then, raise thoughtful, safe and positive kids.
