Tip of the Month

I am often asked to provide resources to adults for helping kids navigate screen time, social media and other online issues. One suggestion is to start listening to the wonderful podcast series called “Their Own Devices". Dr David Reitman, a pediatrician and fellow adolescent health colleague, along with Marc Groman, a former Obama White House tech and privacy adviser recently launched this series. On one episode, for example, entitled “Spying or Parenting - Do We Need to Respect Our Kids’ Digital Privacy?” they discussed the pros and cons of checking on kids’ texts, what’s app and online messages and what age (if ever) to stop. I highly recommend tuning in to “Their Own Devices" to get helpful tips and strategies for your digital parenting questions!
