Global Social Technology and the Psychological Impact on a Child
SPECIAL REBROADCAST (This show originally aired March 21, 2019)
Every day new technologies are being handed to our kids that will catapult them from the safety and sanctity of their own homes to becoming performers on the world stage. Much of this technology is encrypted or vaporware (disappearing video) which means the child is isolated from parental supervision resulting in the child being solely responsible for their decisions and behaviors. Advancing technologies mean that a pedophile no longer has to worm their way through the Instagram system and seduce your child, but, rather, on Tik Tok, your child freely performs before potentially millions of strangers, who can communicate with your child and know their profile information and geo location.
Few of us understand the over-ranging impact of this Societal Shift. Global Social Technology will change our kids and how they perceive relationships. Gone are the days when you friended and unfriended. With mass audience live-streaming, our kids develop goals of having tens of thousands of followers where very few of them are “personal” friends. The challenge is that our kids are still using real-life relationship criteria to evaluate the integrity of the people they are communicating with. Teaching our children to transition between the cyber-fantasy world and real-life decision consequences may be one of the greatest challenges for this generation.
