Love the short & concise reviews of apps
The review of a popular app in each podcast episode is extremely helpful. As a busy parent I feel as though staying up-to-date on new apps and the parental controls available can be a full-time job. The short, concise overview of apps is really helpful to know how the app works, the red flags to be aware of and any ways to monitor or set-up controls. Love to listen to this podcast that always leaves me feeling like I have the knowledge to help my kids manage technology in a healthy way!
Super Awesome Info for Family Growth
I ❤️ the content Kelly from BraveParenting provides an array of topics for raising well-adjusted children in a safe environment focused on today’s technology. She always does a great job incorporating family values to discuss and think about when parenting bravely. I love these podcasts as a resource to improve how I manage technology in our home. I highly recommend listening to these!!
We NEED this
We taught our kids how to cut up their food into bite sized pieces so they don’t choke. We taught them how to look both ways when they crossed the street. We taught them how to dial 911 and how to discern real danger. We need to teach them how to use technology and not get hurt. We all need the encouragement and advice from Brave Parenting. It’s not worth the risk to just “wing it” and hope for the best, the price is our kids!
