Is ADHD Tech Tied? [#OpGenZ]

@ymn0724, Instagram

Generation Z is sometime called the tech generation because technology is their life!

Blame it on the TV, cell phones, laptops, game consols, MP3 players and the iPads with countless apps!

The thing that worries me the most about this technology overload is the shortened attention span and increasing cases of ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) present in Gen Z.

Are you Tech Tied?

People born from the mid ’90s through today have figured out how to connect themselves to everything in the world from their mobile device — music, friends, games, concerts, photos, books, movies and even food!

It has come to the point where technology has found its way into the classroom, too. And we’re not talking about the type of technology Generations X and Y experienced (wood workshops — how to make things out of good ol’ wood). These youngsters are learning how to create using computers and interacting with each other online, rather than brainstorming with a pen and paper. Homework assignments are to be done online, and now, even some lessons are only available through a computer screen.

Some say all this technology is positive because it makes our children self-motivated and informed beyond measure. The world is literally at their fingertips. But are kids exposed to too much, too soon?

Others say Gen Z’s attachment to their phones has a negative effect because our children are adapting the “gotta have it now” mentality and are so attached to the screen that they disconnect with family and peers standing right in front of them.

So what can we do to help GenZ flourish with their new technology and not get Tech Tied?

Hmmm well we can start by showing them the beauty of the written language instead of text and emails. We can also encourage the youth to come from behind the screen and go outside! Or introduce them to board games during a weekly family fun night.

Lets make them well rounded and give them a piece of our generation so they can be more than Tech Savvy!
