I recently asked my blog readers if they could do without a handheld device like a smartphone or tablet for 24 hours.
It’s a reasonable question to ask since mobile users check their smartphones an average of 150 times a day.
Digital addiction can be an easy thing to fall prey to, especially since access is all around us. We use computers for work, we carry devices in our pockets and most places offer free WIFI.
The “digital invasion” is here. Along with it, we have teens with lower-than-average emotional intelligence and signs of technology-induced dementia, a rise in compulsive disorders and kids who don’t know how to use their imaginations when they play.
I have good news for you, though: the digital invasion doesn’t have to hurt your family.
Today we’re re-airing a two-part broadcast – part of our year’s “best of” programming – that will help parents gauge if their family is heading in the wrong direction. Our guest experts, father-and-daughter team Dr. Archibald Hart and Dr. Sylvia Hart Frejd, will go into the science behind the wiring of our brains and how we learn. More importantly, however, they’ll share how we can rediscover the calm of spiritual discipline that will protect our families from the digital invasion.
You can listen to “Protecting Your Family from the Digital Invasion” on the radio or online.
