Monday’s with ME: Social/Emotional Challenges (7/9/12)
Can technology be used to help your kids deal with social and emotional challenges?
These Mom Enough guests think so, and they have some great ideas of where to start!
You’ve heard Marti & Erin discuss the risks of too much technology in the lives of children and adults. But we know technology can also offer some great tools for learning about and dealing with issues like bullying, depression and sexuality.
Therapist Suzanne Harman and writer Molly Kelash have teamed up to develop an app called TeenSphere that gives young people a new safe way to reflect on their own emotional health – and also lets them know when to seek help from a trusted adult. Even young children can benefit from some of the new health-focused apps, so Marti & Erin and their guests identify helpful resources for tots to teens.
