TBQH, we can’t be friends if you’re the kind of parent who forbids iPads. … I kid! Mostly.
But for me, parenting is about balance, and with three young kids there is no way for me to take a 100% “No” policy when it comes to technology. I mean, kids learn on computers in school; they use computers for homework; and hell… someone has to know how to operate a cell phone if mama gets hurt or locked in the toy closet!
While I respect some parents might say No way to technology, that’s not how we’re choosing to raise our kids. Instead, we’re working on healthy boundaries where they’re exposed, but not immersed.
That’s why I was so excited to dig into the topic of Kids and Technology on the live show today. This show we laughed, man. It was fun. Dr. Roberta Golinkoff and Dr. Rebecca Dore really dove in with me on this one, and let me ask stupid questions like, “Is Fortnite really that bad??”
Okay there was also lots more. 😉 Enjoy!
As always, the podcast version comes out tomorrow, if listening is more your thing.
