WE OWE EVERYTHING TO OUR MOTHERS
Raising Free Range Kids in a Digital Age
“In a child's eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe.” - N.K. Jemisin, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
Challenges of a Digital Age Mother
Not Enough Time
"A competitive society conceives of care as a private good rather than a broad and public value; to care for one's child is to make sure they have a competitive edge against other children. This competitive edge, or cultural capital, consists of individual prestige and social qualities transmitted through the family, but is also dependent on 'usable time, particularly in the form of mother's free time'." -Tronto; Bourdieu
A Quick, Digital Solution
Many moms are working full-time or part-time while raising children. Others are stay-at-home. Regardless, it's a challenge to keep your kid(s) engaged or busy for the entire day. Sometimes giving them a video screen or tablet is an easy solution. It's a quick solution and gives you a breather! However, it may have some unintended consequences. That's why we're here.
They Are Who They Are
Parenting is stressful. There's a lot of pressure. Guess what? It may not matter all that much for children's anxiety and depression levels. Two meta analysis journals in psychology found that other conditions, such as genetics, play a far more impactful role in whether or not a child is anxious or depressed. Parenting, in fact, has little effect, according to the academic studies. I can hear sighs of relief.
