Parents Don’t Let Technology Raise Your Children.

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

( William Jackson a teacher with Duval County Public Schools, Edward Waters College, national and international blogger speaks with parents, children, teens and young adults about the importance of monitoring time when using technology, involved in Social Media and even gaming.

During multiple presentations at The Bridge of Northeast Florida the dialogue is family unity is being disrupted because technology in many forms has invaded homes and even communities causing distraction, disassociation and distance between family members, the family unit and structure are falling apart because communication is stopping.

Communities are not engaged as they once were because children and families attentions are focused on digital devices that engage them in digital and unrealistic worlds.

Modeling for their children and setting high levels of behaviors to build stronger families that are connected with communication not through electronic devices is a parent’s responsibility.
