I agree. And take those high tech phones away and replace them with track/gps phones with restricted features. No computers unless for homework. Definitely no social media. Young people need to know how to engage socially face to face- how to be around other folks who's different. Cuz the lack of communication (or the inability to communicate effectively) is what's causing the distraction in our youth-which by the way increases cultural violence in high risked neighborhoods. So we have to take those devices away at an early age and limit computer use by treating it as a tool for academic development-not a necessity to live life. Cuz once these gadgets are gone, young people can developmentally focus which allows critical thinking to manifest. This important transitional process will help them to understand what's going on around them in real time with the ability to respond to it cognitively. Instead of being robotic zombies with button reflex. However, I am so glad to see self-appointed mentors out there stepping up-talking to the youngins. Cuz many of em are hypnotized by all these psychological triggers...you see it in billboards, in movies, commercial, music..and all the gadgets. Kids don't know how to navigate through all of that. So we must take control and teach them. However way we can. It's the only way. We can start by making sure any child in our presence can read. But!
