"In a previous post, I asked the question: “Is technology making your children mindless instead of mindful?” I think it’s safe to say that it is incredibly difficult for children to be mindful, present, and calm in our culture that is now dominated by the constant flow of information.
"Yet, if you want your children to be truly happy, you must give them opportunities to experience mindfulness. In this crazy new world of technology, what a wonderful lifelong gift you give your children when you help them to, paraphrasing a well-known adage from the 1960s counterculture movement, to “turn off and tune in.” You do this by creating regular opportunities for your children to disconnect from technology.
"You can start by looking at your children’s lives and seeing all the times when they’re “mindless,” meaning they’re being overwhelmed by information, distracted, and drawn outside of themselves. You will likely find that this state of mind dominates their daily lives."
