Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
George Bernard Shaw
The modern world is a tough place to navigate, we now have much more fluid and changing relationships both within the family and with friends, colleagues and strangers.
As a society we are much more connected, we can instantly connect and engage with people from across the world in just a click of a button. So can children.
We’re experiencing a rise in identity exploration and crisis’; we’re exploring our sexuality and gender in a much more open and fluid way, the ‘traditional’ family of is no longer the ‘norm’, bullying is no longer restricted to the school playground and 9am till 3pm; but mobile phones and the internet allow bullying to take place around the clock, anomalously and targeted, non-stop.
We share our life on social media platforms and seek acceptance with a ‘like’. Our role models are no longer athletes and singers, but can be everyday people who share their life through vlogs and blogs on the internet. As do our children.
There is a rise in terrorism, and media is reporting not just local events but events from all over the world. We are constantly bombarded with marketing messages, health scares, bad news… we no longer seek media, we are surrounded by it. So are our children.
So much has changed in the last decade alone, has our parenting?
Our children need new skills, help, support and guidance to face these modern world challenges. Not just ‘stranger-danger’ awareness, but skills to cope with the thoughts and feelings that arise from our new ‘connected’ world.
Did you know, according to a recent report from Public Health England, that in an average class of 30 15-year-old pupils:
Three could have a mental disorder
Ten are likely to have witnessed their parents separate
One could have experienced the death of a parent
Seven are likely to have been bullied
Six may be self-harming
