How much time on devices is too long? Should kids put up their smartphones and talk to each other and parents sometimes? Are we using technology too much as parents? 

Today, for Thought Leader Thursday, Weston Kieschnick @wes_kieschnick and I have a conversation about digital parenting. There aren't easy answers, but one thing is sure, we won't find answers without having the hard conversations. 

In today's show, Weston and I discuss: 

  • Digital overuse and digital deserts and the need for balance 
  • The dangers of letting kids have devices during time for sleep 
  • The challenges faced by parents in today's digital age 
  • Questions for parents to consider about moderation 
  • Experiences and observations about digital overuse and misuse
