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’ve witnessed 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.
A NEW APPROACH: LIFE CHOICE SKILLS
As our digital world accelerates and the pressures on our families intensify, parents urgently need new ways to protect and prepare their children for the future. That’s why I’ve joined with my long-time friend, and kids product developer, 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 – the key to a positive future in the Age of Noise.
To do this, we’ll draw on a unique and powerful new approach called INNERTAINMENT – and we’ll use the Innertainment Playbook to provide parents with engaging and enjoyable tools that enhance parent/child communication and foster the development of these all-important life-choice skills.
We invite you to join us in our CHOICE-FULL FAMILY PROJECT.
