Today I’m challenged & reminded to use the medium of Mobile to extend my Mothering influence. Sometimes I forget, as an on the go mom, to use my mobile device as a tool to reach out & communicate with my tween/teen on a level that’s personal & directed.
Text messaging that encourages, build’s-up and affirms the love I have, for them, makes a huge difference in their lives. Fun pictures, posted on social platforms, is another way to connect.
We all know mobile devices are not the ultimate way of connection; nothing can replace the face-to-face time we share with our children. However, our devices can become tools which extend the face-to-face time; dropping affirming messages while shopping, at work, travel, at school, etc.
I’m reminded to intentionally extend my mothering efforts beyond the walls of home and into my children’s sphere of influence, and most importantly, into their hearts!
Happy Mother’s Day!
