I think it’s safe to say that all parents have a LOVE HATE relationship with technology!   I’m no different!   Most of us are just trying to figure out how much is too much, and we’re scared it might already be too late for our kids who seem to be hooked on devices.  Don’t fret!  There’s HOPE!

Enter my guest, Dr Shimi Kang who is a highly decorated psychiatrist and an expert on the brain and addiction.   In this episode she shares how the brain is impacted by technology, where we are seeing changes in the brain, and most importantly, what we can do about it!

The reality is, that in adolescents, we are seeing an increase in anxiety, depression, body image distortion, and addiction.  We are also seeing physical effects with bad posture, back pain, and obesity.  This means we need to be aware of what the possible damages are to our kids so we can correct them. 

In Dr. Kang’s new book, The Tech Solution, she shares a plan to help you have more balance in your home with technology and devices and shares a 6 step plan to help you disconnect your kids.

SHOW NOTES​

Monitoring our kids' tech use is one of our biggest challenges as parents. In this episode, I chat with Dr. Shimi Kang about strategies for raising our kids with a healthy "tech diet." We discuss several of the concepts from her new book, The Tech Solution: Creating Healthy Habits for Kids Growing Up in a Digital World.

ABOUT DR. SHIMI KANG

Dr. Shimi Kang is an award-winning, Harvard-trained doctor, researcher, media expert, writer, and keynote speaker who specializes in how the mind works. Dr. Kang provide science-based solutions for innovation, leadership, wellness, and resilience. She's spent over 20 years in researching, treating, and working with people from all walks of life. Dr. Kang is passionate about providing science-based tools that optimize the power of the human brain. She is the founder of Dolphin Kids: Future-Ready Leaders, CEO of Spark Mindset App, and host of the YouTube show; “Mental Wealth with Dr. Shimi Kang”.

Her books have been released in 12 countries around the world and her newest title, The Tech Solution: Creating Healthy Habits for Kids Growing up in a Digital World, is now available!

BIG IDEAS

• The tech we consume impacts our minds, just like the food we consume impacts our bodies, knowing that then now we can start to help them understand that toxic tech is any tech that releases that stress response.

• We have to understand that technology is like no other product that has come before. There's something called persuasive design. This is a deliberate use of very sophisticated neuroscience. Our dopamine pathways are being used to really get us attracted and keep us on screens. 

• The good news is that habits can always change. We have something called neuroplasticity, which means we can always build new pathways. 

• I talk about future ready kids having the C’s of 21st century learning. Children who understand communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and contribution. All of these are gonna be played out online as much as real life. That's going to be the new future ready child and adults.
