What is Digital Wellness: Nurturing a Healthy Relationship with Technology

article image placeholderUploaded by @HeatherB
I'm surrounded by tech. My family is very tech. But regardless whether you are or aren't, digital wellness is something that you can always get into and that you can model and that you can get your kids start using at an early age. I think there's obviously a lot of worry from parents about the tech because they don't understand it sometimes and they get worried

They're going to continue to be in an online world, and all it does is equip them with skills and knowledge to help them navigate it better. They're going to learn how to maintain a healthy balance. They're going to learn how to be empowered to make better choices, how to develop self regulation and set boundaries for themselves and time block for themselves. They're going to learn how to build positive relationships and follow positive content and unfollow the negative

So it's kind of just that be a model for them while you're learning about it, and then do it together and hold each other accountable. Then fostering media literacy. As a teacher, I can't let this one go. We really, really need to see the importance and value of technology, but also teaching our kids media literacy skills. It's important that they get this information on, you know, how do I evaluate online information?
