Society is a constantly changing path today. At Google, drafting, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, you need more to figure out the views of children and the perception of reality. While these services have great benefits, the release of children by digital means is significant. These non-personal interactions, which would replace many types of verbal communication, should teach our children the importance of direct personal interaction. It's a great way to do this through the "hands-on" community service.
One of the great things about volunteering is that it usually deals with dealing with people. And many of these tend to adopt the "old school" communication methods. There are also volunteers who are still alive in life without a mobile phone or computer. While technology can be a great tool for coordinating and managing community service programs, it rarely replaces the volunteer's eye-catching efforts to get the job done.
The new technology can not do the job:
Whether Habitat for Humanity, Wheels on Wheels, volunteers in literacy or thousands of other major national and local causes, communication and socialization are irreplaceable. You can not use a hammer to hang plasterboard. You can not send a beep to enter a meal to close. You can not help someone learn to read on Like on Facebook. And although YouTube is great, you can not get ready for a hot meal at the homeless shelter.
Wash hands and smile for a long time:
If you help a homeless family with some of the garments used to warm their children in the winter, they will probably not be able to try their coat "digitally". It is much nicer to meet a real man with a warm smile and a firm handshake that someone really cares about his family.
And working at a workplace, transforming the house will make everyone ask questions, share ideas, and work together to complete renovations. There are always supervisors who are walking, talking openly about everything from weather to sports or even to youth participants. While these conversations are reluctant to keep up with their parents, I personally found that they are very open and honest when sharing their thoughts with another volunteer.
Children need more social interaction: Old-fashioned conversation, helping others, and group work can not be replaced by new technology. Community service forces them to develop, enhance and use these skills more efficiently, which can only help them in all aspects of life. From career aspirations and interviews to dating, maternity and family upbringing. Those with great communication skills will always be able to handle situations better than not.
We encourage them to use their adolescence years to experience both new and old communication methods. I'm afraid if not, then the next generation will gradually lose its interpersonal skills or worse, never develop it. I can not imagine a world where we rely entirely on digital communication. But this is the trend that our children are controlling. It's time to turn this tide and your children can make a difference.
Help the community and their children at the same time. Involve them in activities that force them to develop and use interpersonal communication. Society rewards its voluntary efforts and their voluntary efforts reward their future growth. And another great communicator can only help society as a whole. This is a win-win situation for all participants.
