Is your teen spending too much time alone?
Do they struggle with social anxiety? Do they spend more time in their room on their devices than out with friends? Is it a battle to get them to even engage with the family?
Kids these days are facing the challenge of becoming addicted to their screens, and the distraction they provide. Games, YouTube, Nextflix, and Instagram all promote a lack of authentic connection. Instead, they are learning to seek out little hits of dopamine as a substitute for relationships.
I’m very concerned about increased depression and substance abuse in the face of hours spent with technology. Sure, in the moment, it may seem like fun. But their social skills and ability to self-soothe are being upsurped by devices that don’t really love them back.
Don’t let your teen just flounder on their own. It is not healthy to stay indoors all the time and avoid social contact. I know it can be daunting to think of how to redirect them towards healthier behavior. This is where I can help. Contact me, and let’s think together about how to support your child in creating a life that best suits them… where they might thrive.
