Smartphones, dopamine and phubbing

I love Simon Sinek’s passion about this subject… the problems smartphones are causing in homes and the workplace.

This little YouTube video is a great one to play with your families (and then ask the questions I posted below)

5 questions to ask your kids:

“Have you ever noticed this dopamine-driven desire to pick up your phones?” (more from Simon on this HERE. . .he begins talking about tech at 3 minutes )

“Has anyone ever phubbed you or made you feel this way with their phones?”

“Do you think maybe you have ever made anyone feel this way with your phone?”

“What are some ways we can avoid allowing our phones to enslave us?”

“What are some helpful ‘limits’ like maybe ‘no tech at the dinner table’ that we can adopt around the house?”
