CHOICE-FULLNESS – AN ANTIDOTE TO NOISE
What will your children’s future will be like? Will your kids be happy, successful, and fulfilled? Will they have the chance to reach their potential? Every parent wants these things for their children, but if you’re a parent today, you need to know that your kids face a problem unlike that of any generation before them…and that problem is NOISE – an avalanche of Distraction, Distortion, and Overload directed at them from technology, media and consumerism.
And the effects of Noise go far beyond familiar concerns like compulsive screen use, obsession with social media, bullying, sexting, etc. Noise is hi-jacking your children’s future…by targeting and disrupting development of your children’s brains – specifically, their high brains – the part responsible for critical thinking, creativity, resilience and more. And even more troubling, Noise is re-wiring their brains to need more and more Noise, which impacts their education and lowers their ability to make wise and thoughtful choices – leaving them less focused, less motivated, less happy…and more open to anxiety, depression, sleep problems, and even suicide.
To make your job as a parent even more difficult, industry insiders have now revealed that Noise is no accident. Much of the technology and media your kids use today is designed to track their behavior, exploit their vulnerabilities, addict them to their devices, and train them to become compliant consumers. So, the dilemma is…how can you allow your children to use technology, and at the same time, protect them from the damaging effects of non-stop Noise? It’s a complex problem…one that can’t be solved by focusing on their tech use alone. To protect your children, you need to help them develop an antidote to the Noise. That antidote is Choice-Fullness.
The first step in that process is for parents, and all of us, is to learn how to become more Choice-Full in our own lives. We can start by acknowledging that it is simply not possible to keep up with the ever-increasing demands on our time, energy and attention. We cannot do everything that’s asked of us, or be everything we’re told we should be. We need to make choices…choices that help us (and our families) create more balance in our lives. Choices that move us toward REAL happiness, fulfillment and success. At LIVE ABOVE THE NOISE, that’s our goal…to give parents and families the essential tools they need to become more Choice-Full…and to raise Choice-Full children in the Age of Overwhelm.
