This is a letter I’ve written to my sons. It’s part of a series which covers a wide variety of topics in which I attempt to give my boys life guidance. I hope you’ll find some of these ideas helpful when talking with your own children.
As you know, I’m concerned about you spending too much time watching videos, playing games or even messaging people on your phone.
We limit the amount of time you can do those things, but I want to explain why.
I’m not just setting limits to be mean and stricter than your friends’ parents, but I have real reasons that I feel are important.
Knowing these reasons may help you understand a bit more.
Your life will be very different from mine, your grandparents’ or anyone else who’s lived before.
You will have many opportunities. More opportunities than others before you could have imagined.
But you will also encounter very big challenges.
Challenges no humans have ever had to contend with.
