Happiness Tip 72

Welcome to week 72

..and a big Heads Up for all you Parents and indeed Grandparents of youngsters with mobile phones..

those who have followed me for a goodly while will understand I advocate understanding why we think as we do..sounds so simple!..but you see it isn't...it's important because the way we think will affect our feelings and our feelings affect our behaviour..so..to continue to share my tip..

there is an alarming expression that seems to have hit the streets ...the streets of school children...called Ghosting

the expression of Ghosting within adult understanding is when someone 'drops out of your life' as in no reply to texts, phone calls or emails..

the expression of Ghosting is currently being used with youngsters so imagine this..A sends a text to B..B thinks they Have to respond immediately in case A thinks B is Ghosting them

can you see how dangerous this is? this need to respond immediately could mean a youngster completely obsessed with their phone

within my work I often use the example of sending texts..and that no one should worry about the time lag of any desired reply..no one knows what is going on for the person they have sent a text to..they could be hanging on a cliff and the last thing on their mind is responding to the text!

so my tip is basically saying check your own thoughts when people don't reply...I am also suggesting do keep an eye on youngsters who are your responsibility..

in my opinion it's so important for us all, and especially youngsters, to have mobile phones that serve us..not make us slaves because of how we think!
