Many of us could not have imaged the amount of information that is literally available at our fingertips today (I love being able to find instant answers to the many questions that pop into my head). Our girls have access to a wonderful world of discovery, learning and communication. However, as teachers and parents, we are acutely aware that this world has pitfalls. This article talks of the ‘Fear of missing out’. It is a form of societal anxiety defined as “the worry that other people might be having more rewarding and exciting experiences than you are”.

I encourage you to share this article with your girls so they do not to fall into the trap of becoming dependent on people online to make their decisions. To understand that others are not necessarily having a better time, or look better, or are happier - that the online world socially is a pretend world.

We encourage our girls to communicate with people in the real world, to find an adult they are comfortable sharing their thoughts with and to stand strong in the knowledge they are capable decision makers and not dependent on others for their happiness.

Detoxing from the digital sphere will be a daily challenge. As I consider this for myself I wish you good luck in finding a balance for your family during 2017.
