The New Substitute Family: SCREENS

What’s bothering parents most? We recently partnered with a research firm to find out. The results: Parents are worried most that they are “LOSING THEIR KIDS TO SCREENS”.  In other words, screens are the new “SUBSTITUTE FAMILY”

In this episode, I unpack this research—Kids are turning more toward their peers for moral guidance… than us, their parents. Kids believe what their friends believe over what their parents believe.

Listen for practical tips for ways to start getting your kids oriented more to you—their parents—by first setting some healthy limits around screen time. Check out the Mayo Clinic article referenced in the show, too!
