Confessions of a Modern Parent

Friday, 30 April

Do our teens see too much violence on their devices? Is violent material too freely available and what are the consequences for our children’s mental health? Are youngsters numb to acts of extreme violence? Have they all got some level of PTSD from seeing too much? Are youngsters aware of what’s right and what’s wrong violence? When is it important to see violent material (for political reasons) and when does it become counter productive? What controls are there for parents and kids when it comes to preventing easy access to violent material? What are the potential dangers of being exposed to too much violence and is there a difference between real violence and fictionalised violence? Is one better or worse than the other? Find out answers to these questions and many more in this episode of Confessions of A Modern Parent. They take questions and suggestions from listeners on their experiences in parenting roles.
