ADHD is being diagnosed now more so then ever before, ADHD is listed as “the abnormal defect of moral control”,
I believe this is from childhood parenting and now technology.
think of a baby as a blank sheet of paper and the parents are in charge of that paper, and what goes on that paper. you must see where i am going with this, parents do form their child’s early habits and behaviors, this in which inhabits the babys personality and character. As time goes on these habits will get stronger and stronger depending on what the parents teach, act, or do around the child. The younger the more impressionable they are. As the child gets older they start to form their own decisions based off their moral code. If the parents disrupted the child’s moral values the child will have a great mental battle to change those moral values.
On the other hand, I think technology is creating ADHD through its many distractions and its convince to us as human beings. We have great technology that makes everything faster and best of all easier, but i think convince is taking away our attention spans. Being bored isn’t fun all the time but when your bored it gives yourself reflection ti
me just quiet alone time with no distractions. If you have your phone you might become distracted by a phone call or a text message, and if the t.v. is on a commericial might catch your eye or a part in a epic movie. When you are alone with nothing t
o do you are precieved to reflect on things you would have never thought about
when busy or distracted.
We live very fast. Might it be time we slow down?
The thing that separates a brain from a computer is that if you don’t continue to use certain skills they begin to drift. I think ADHD is not just a disorder but a worldwide epidemic that will soon get larger and larger. Being fo
cused is being able to think about one thing at a time……with all the distractions in ones life it is a challenge to keep the mind in check.
other studies support that message and brand “exposure” can range from 3,000 to 20,000 times. Those higher numbers not only include ads, but also include every time you pass by a label in a grocery store, all the ads in your mailbox whether you see them or not, the label on everything you wear, the condiments in your fringe, the cars on the highway, etc.
