Take a Break!: The Importance of Media Brownouts

About the Course

Salacious Social Media sites, violent video games, consumption commercials, oversexed teen magazines, misogynistic music videos, and violent movies, have come to make many Generation Z youth violent and aggressive, obese, sexual too soon, and lacking the social skills to make friends and to positively resolve conflicts. No other generation in history has ever been bombarded with the negative media imagery that they have been exposed to. This workshop discusses the pervasive problem of negative media and how workers can help caregivers limit media time by creating media brownouts – times where no media is used in the home and the family spends time together. The end goal is to strengthen family bonds and build social skills while curbing the dependence on media.
