The Dr. Robin Zasio Show “Mental Health Matters”
9th July 2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Topic: Taming the Family Dynamics.
Guest: Joanna Jullien, Author/Speaker/Educator.
Kids are more anxious and prone to mental health problems as mobile connectivity ushers into our hearts and minds the adult issues of isolation, bullying, addictions and exploitation. In this networked, global culture of devices and apps that hypes fear emotion, we and our children will be needing to secure fresh starts for ourselves. And while we do not have control over our children’s thoughts and actions, nor the technology – we do have control over our own hearts and minds and the family culture which is how by faith we exercise our inherent authority to engage the intellect and will of youth and build trust. My Guest, Joanna Jullien, will share strategies that include an overview of the threats and opportunities of mobile connectivity, and impact on family life; communication as engagement, not lecturing; elements of family culture; exercises to navigate your own beliefs and fears; assessment of age appropriate use of apps and devices; guidance to establish cyber rites of passage; and tips for formulating house rules as empowerment.
