Today, we’re talking about how to help our kids make wise and safe choices on social media, the Internet, and gaming apps. START Co-Founder and Executive Director Tracy Foster joins Robrenna today, and together they talk through how to engage with our kids in conversation about technology.

Topics Discussed in this Episode:
• How parents can feel competent and confident in awkward conversations about technology
• Why the generations before us really can’t help us navigate this new frontier like we wish they could (and what we can do about it)
• The #1 question Tracy gets: “How do I juggle this world where I can’t get away from screens?”
• Keeping your kids safe, sane, and relationally seen in the virtual world
• Why the question of quality screen time matters more than quantity of screen time (creating, connecting and consuming)
• Having a “Define the Relationship” conversation with your kids about how they want you to interact with them on social media
