Technology is both wonderful and complicated, and the complications grow exponentially as screens go from educational or entertainment “playback” for younger kids to digital eco-system and social “livelihood” for tweens and teens. In Episode 170, Christine interviews Julianna Miner about her new book, Raising A Screen-Smart Kid: Embrace the Good and Avoid the Bad in the Digital Age. Christine and Julianna talk about how to decide when to get your kid a phone, kids and digital affirmation, modeling good tech behavior, teaching kids social skills, identifying digital addiction, and understanding digital mentorship.
