Who will be in charge of your children's future?

LIVE ABOVE THE NOISE – PODCAST

 The CHOICE-FULL FAMILY Project

Our digital world brings us many benefits – but it also exposes our children to an addictive and toxic mix of tech, media, and consumerism that harms their healthy development and undermines their long-term happiness.

To navigate the critical challenges of this accelerating digital world, children and families need to develop a power we call CHOICE-FULLNESS.  It’s a power built on a new and different set of skills – skills specifically designed to protect and prepare our children for a positive and fulfilling future in the Age of Noise.  We call these new skills, LIFE-CHOICE SKILLS.

Helping families develop Choice-Fullness through LIFE-CHOICE SKILLS is what this podcast is all about.

EPISODE #1:  THE CHOICE-FULL FAMILY PROJECT

Hello, I’m Dr. Rob Reiher.

When I talk to parents today, they often tell me they feel stressed and overwhelmed, and struggle to deal with many of the issues surrounding their children’s use of technology.

As a developmental and educational psychologist, I share their concerns.  Having worked in the media and entertainment industries for decades, I’m increasingly troubled by the growing misuse (and overuse) of tech, media and consumerism – and its harmful effects on the healthy development of our children.  In fact, some years ago, I co-wrote the book, “KIDNAPPED…How Irresponsible Marketers Are Stealing The Minds Of Your Children”, to address this very problem.

LIFE CHOICE SKILLS: THE KEY TO CHOICE-FULLNESS

As our digital world accelerates, and the challenges facing families grow more complex, parents urgently need to find new ways to protect their children and prepare them for the future.  That’s why I’ve joined together with my long-time friend, and podcast host, Wayne Yercha, to create this podcast.  In it, we have one aim – to help children and families develop the critical life-choice skills they need to become more Choice-Full – and create a positive and fulfilling future in the Age of Noise.

To do this, we’ll introduce parents to a unique, family-friendly approach called The Innertainment Playbook, which utilizes entertainment insights in an engaging and motivating way to enhance parent/child communication and foster the development of these all-important life-choice skills.

We invite you to join us in this CHOICE-FULL FAMILY PROJECT.
