There has been a great deal of information in the press recently about social media and screen time and how this impacts children. I believe that this debate will rage for a while yet. In the meantime we now have to equip ourselves and our children to be able to manage the information they are accessing. As a culture we are yet to understand the full consequences of social media as it is still in its infancy however we can explain to our children how imperative it is that they learn to be selective over what they are subjecting their brains to. As parents we try and protect them in every way we can but they must also learn to self-manage as they get older and move away from us.
Within Solution Focused Hypnotherapy sessions we encourage our clients to stay positive and move away from negativity. This can often bring a greater awareness as to whether the “friends” one associates with encourage us to be the best versions of ourselves or bring out our worst sides.
