Could Media Increase Anxiety In Your Child?

Could Media Increase Anxiety In Your Child?

 

“If you have school aged children, it’s pretty likely that they have been exposed to some of the disturbing news of these past few weeks. Every era has its ups and downs — war, natural disasters, economic trouble, social problems and crime. But what distinguishes today from any other era is our instant access to these devastating events. it is particularly important to consider the impact of disaster media cues on children.” The continuous new’s clips and updates is a reminder to a child that something frightening can happen. The tone of alarm or seeing frightening images can be very terrifying. Given a child’s perspective of time and place, there may be little ability to differentiate how close they are to what they are seeing. As we found with 9/11, children are often unable to determine that what they are seeing is a repeat of the same video clip and not more planes or waves or houses blown away.

Hate Deciding What’s For Dinner? You May Have Decision Fatigue

Wasatch Family Therapy Depression

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Decision fatigue is a term coined by the social psychologist Roy F. Baumeister. Decision fatigue is different from ordinary physical fatigue — you’re not consciously aware of being tired — but you’re low on mental energy. The more choices you make throughout the day, the harder each one becomes for your brain. Your brain eventually looks for shortcuts, usually in either of two very different ways: act impulsively or avoid any decision.

Decision fatigue routinely warps the judgment of everyone, executive and non- executive, rich and poor. Yet few people are even aware of it, and researchers are only beginning to understand why it happens and how to counteract it. One of the experiments showed that the probability of being paroled fluctuated wildly throughout the day. Prisoners who appeared early in the morning received parole about 70 percent of the time, while those who appeared late in the day were paroled less than 10 percent of the time. The research also observed decision fatigue in doctors, pilots, shopping and planning for a wedding.
