I look around at all the distractions that we did not have 25 years ago. Computers, e-mail, phones, tablets, we cannot get away from them. I know that I personally feel weird if my cell phone is not within my reach. How much of our distractions have to do with the way children have changed? Today, I ask you to consider that in your interactions with your children. Children will seek attention and if they do not get it, they will often escalate their behavior to make sure they have our attention.
Just something to think about…where is your attention today?
