Dr. Kerry White Brown, an esteemed Orthodontist with nearly 20 years’ experience, publishes new article looking at how protected kids should be from adult matters.
Columbia, South Carolina — November 15, 2017 — Carolina Orthodontist Kerry Brown White recently published a new article, “How Much Should a Responsible Mom Let Her Kids ‘Adult’?” In the article Dr. White Brown considers the extent to which moms should allow kids to be “in the know” regarding things in the news, world events, etc.
It is no doubt, explains Dr. White Brown, that the world can sometimes feel “topsy-turvy” and frightening for adults. Now, imagine what the same information that is coming at adults 24/7 does when filtered through the developing minds of children of any age?
In response to this question, Dr. White Brown says, “All-too-often, as busy moms who are kicking butt and taking names to get it all done, we can temporarily “forget” that little eyes and ears (or even adolescent or teenage eyes and ears) are absorbing some – or even a lot – of the same things we are. Is this okay? All bad? Or somewhere in between?”
Next, Dr. White Brown considers the answers to these questions, beginning with how much “responsible” moms should let her kids be aware of what is happening out in the world. She adds, “While it may seem futile, it is advisable to take whatever steps we can to protect our kids from some of the things the world offers up, for as long as possible.”
From there, Dr. White Brown gives specific considerations for how to address this dilemma with kids of each group.
