Novak and Jenela Djokovic have been married since 2014. Stefan, the couple’s first child, was born in the year 2014. Their second child, a baby girl named Tara, was born in 2017.
Jelena is the co-founder and director of the Novak Djokovic Foundation, which works predominantly with children. She just posted an Instagram photo inviting people to watch the documentary “Childhood 2.0.”
She also included a meaningful caption with the photo to warn people about the potentially harmful effects of social media on children.
Jelena’s emotional note
Jelena Djokovic, Novak Djokovic’s wife, posted a moving remark on Instagram after watching the documentary “Childhood 2.0.” The film demonstrates how today’s children are growing more and more immersed in the digital world.
“I recently watched very important documentary on Social media dangers and its impact on childhood. I was mind blown. Every parent, child, teacher, grandparent should watch. It is for free on Youtube and it’s name is Childhood 2.0,” she wrote on the picture she posted on Instagram.
“Please lets talk about this more and be more aware: anxiety, depression, suicides are so common among kids as young as 10 thanks to horrible trend of judgment, bullying, sexting which is living thanks to social media. While we are protecting our kids from dangers that we think are outside, on the streets, we are failing to realise how serious danger is within our homes.”
According to Jelena, there is no single solution to this problem. There is the necessity for engagement with children and desire to listen to them. She encouraged all parents to speak out for their children and suggested that they communicate with them.
Jelena also shared the documentary’s link on Twitter, warning people about the risks of social media and encouraging them to view it.
In addition, Jelena brought up another point. Children from all over the world, she claims, are drawn to harmful American social media trends.
“I come from Europe and I know for a fact that even though we are behind US at many things, we are following their Social media trends rapidly,” she said.
“More and more kids that I see online are portraying themselves in far less clothes than appropriate…and chasing likes and follows as a proof of their worth to the world.”
