Since the launch of my first "Facts of Life App" in 2013, I have received incredible attention from the media! The ideas I am talking about clearly resonate with the public.
My main point is this: since the onset of the technology revolution, the way we parent and teach our children need to change. Information is coming to children at an incredibly fast pace. Children see and hear things online, from very early ages, that confuse them. Children talk to each other and play with each other in different ways. Children need to be taught new skills in order to adapt to our changing world. Children's education and mental health needs to be made a public priority. Parents and teachers need help to navigate these new complexities.
I am trying to help and provide guidance so that our families and educational systems are strengthened and our children are made more resilient.
Here is my mission statement:
"I began to envision a larger message, a message about how to help kids live in our changing world. I imagined a caring, integrity-enriched, adult problem-solver of the 21st Century--and I worked backwords. What would we need to teach our children & how would we need to teach them in order to set them on the path of becoming a problem solver who cares?" (Dr. Jillian Roberts)
