    Understanding Crypto & NFTs with Jamie McMahon & Alexia Sabau From CBC Kids

    NFTs - What are they? Do my kids need to know about Crypto? Is this just a new fad or a new trend in digital collectables that are the future? How do Crypto and NFTs come into play with online gaming? These are just a few things we tackle in this episode of The Growing Up With Tech Show. 
    In this episode, I'm joined by not one, but two guests. Jamie McMahon and Alexia Sabow from CBC Kids.
    This podcast topic is one that took me a while to find guests to come on and speak about so I’m really excited to share this with you! Join us as we explain everything (well, mostly) that you need to know about what NFTs and Crypto are...how they come into play for our kids and what parents should know as questions may come up from your kids.

    Virtual Reality, Tech Addiction & The Psychology Of Tech With Georgia Dow

    #018 - Have you ever wondered how Virtual Reality can affect kids? Is too much gaming bad? How do you deal with tech addiction? How can we help our kids become more present in everyday social experiences? We cover all this and a whole lot more on this episode of Growing Up With Tech.

    Have you ever wondered how immersive gaming affects kids? Should we control the amount of time our kids play VR games and why? What does the future hold for VR and AR tech in terms of gaming and social interactions? What about the anxiety of tech and the impact of social media on mental health?

    Financial Literacy For Kids With Gaurav Kapoor from Mydoh

    Financial Literacy For Kids With Gaurav Kapoor from Mydoh

    Teaching kids about banking, finances, savings and more isn't easy. Even the values of an allowance and earning money by doing chores can be challenging. All that is about to get easier with a new app called Mydoh.

    In this episode, I interview the founder of the app, Gaurav Kapoor. We discuss how this app works, how this digital wallet is different from a traditional bank account, how it easily teaches kids about spending, saving and earning money and a whole lot more. If you have ever found it challenging to explain to your kids how bank cards, credit cards and interest charges work to your kids, or if you have ever found it challenging to encourage your kids to become actively involved, regularly, with chores...this will be a game-changer. It definitely has been for me.

    I also have a very exciting offer to share with you from the Mydoh team:
    *Use promo code GUWT10 when you sign up before January 31, 2022, to get $10 deposited in your Mydoh Wallet. This is a one-time use promo code valid between Nov 30/21 and Jan 31/22.  New Mydoh users only. Apply promo code when prompted on initial sign-up.  Offer to be added to your Mydoh Wallet within 1 day of sign-up. Offer can be changed or withdrawn at any time.
