I'm so, so excited today to talk about the topic at hand, because if you have younger kids or maybe you have one that's older and now you have a younger one and you're like, Whoa, I need to make different decisions this time. I'm not going to give that phone so young, but I don't know what other things I can use. I still need to keep in touch with them while I've got another option. I want to share with you. It's not something new, but it is not something I have reviewed on here. So I wants to get it out into your ears so you can explore it for your younger kids so they can stay safe, stay connected, but not be connected to the world and all of the things. Okay. So stay tuned. Speaker 2: (00:41)Welcome to your source for tips, tools, and support to help you be that mom that is tuned in and proactive for yourself, your family, and for the wild ride of raising kids in this digital age, inspired by a mother's love with a relatable, real life. Proud to be that mom flair. This is the bead that mom movement with your host Dolly Denson. Alrighty. Speaker 1: (01:06)So today I'm going to talk about another option that you have to keep connected with your kiddo. That is not a smartphone. I implore you to please not put a smartphone in your child's hands. You know, let them figure out the world before the world tells them what to be and who to, you know, act as an, all of the things that come with that smartphone. There's absolutely not one single child out there that can navigate this. And if we're not going to throw them into a swimming pool without first teaching them how to swim and giving them [inaudible] to help them to navigate the water and figure out their footing in all of that, we should not be putting a smartphone in their hands and expecting them to just know how to navigate it and to manage all of the feelings and all of the things that it comes with it. Speaker 1: (01:51)So, you know, if you've listened to my podcasts, that is my greatest regret. My greatest reason while I am here is because I want to bring you options. I want to bring you awareness. I want to bring you tools and tips to make sure that you can navigate this from a place of love while being proactive and knowing that the digital realm of parenting is absolutely one that we can not ignore. So the thing that I am talking about today is called the tick talk watch. So the tick talk watch is not something that is new. It has been around, but it's not something I have shared about on the podcast. So that is what we're going to talk about today. So this is something that if you have a child that's like five to 10, five to 11, somewhere in there, it is a great option for you. Speaker 1: (02:35)One watch that I have mentioned in a previous episode is the gizmo watch. And that is also a great option. So definitely I can put in the show notes, those links. So you can compare these, but from what I'm hearing from moms, with yo

Jaclyncastro ,

Ridiculously good! Soo needed this!

Thank you so much, Dolly! I going you through Stefanie Gass’s podcast and as soon as you mentioned you y’all about kids and digital I went straight over here. I just listened to the episode about Roblox because my son (13 yo) has been on this platform. He’s using it to create digital t-shirts) and wants to sell it but I’ve been resistant to give him complete access to how he wants to use it - his next idea is to create a (paid) group. Apparently, it’s the only way for him to sell his shirts.

Anyways, there’s so much to say but most importantly I came here to n say Thank you for your podcast! I immediately sent the roblox episode to my husband and told him to listen to it on his way home from work. He sent me a voxer message to let me know how thankful he was that I sent him the episode and that he will be taking the precautions you mentioned in our sons roblox account. Also, he’s going to sign up for bark!!! This is an answered prayer 🙏🏻 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻!!

Coaching with Jose Miguel ,

So NEEDED!

I am an uncle to many neieces and newphew and Dolly's podcast shed light on all the things my family has shared with about their experience and challenges with their tween/teens and social media. Dolly has some much to share and her calling is clear for each parent to learn how to protect their kids.
Thank y ou Dolly for your podcast! It is a gift!

WishIDidThisSooner ,

Instantly wanted to hear more

Hi Dolly. I heard about you through my physical therapist (Shannon) in Chicagoland. I’m an injured comedian (aren’t we all ha ha) in PT post rotator cuff surgery and due to Covid my touring career is parked in my front yard. While she was cranking on my arm we got to talking and I told her I’m launching a podcast with my BFF. Shannon told me about you. I tuned in just to see how you structure it. I was listening to learn about podcasts, not about life. I have five grown sons so I’ve been there and done that multiple times. My BFF was with me and we listened together. We both instantly loved YOU. We just felt ourselves wanting to hang out with Dolly. Great job girl!!! Keep going and helping moms get through momhood. It’s not easy, but it sure is rewarding. Super giant hugs to you!! -Tracy DeGraaf
