Don't Spy On Your Kids' Phones with Dr. Devorah Heitner Under the Influence with Jo Piazza

    • Personal Journals

We all want to make sure that our kids are safe online. But how do we even start to do that? The truth is that it's complicated and it changes every day. If you've ever asked yourself any of the following questions, then this episode is probably for you:
Is my kid addicted to their phone?
Will my kid's online mistakes haunt them forever?
Which apps should I be worried about?
Should I monitor my kids on social media?
When should I get my kid a phone?
Should I track them?
What is the line between monitoring them and being creepy?
Is someone going to send my kid inappropriate photos?
Should I be talking to them about sexting?

Today's guest is going to answer most of those questions for us. It is Dr. Devorah Heitner, the author of Growing Up in Public, Coming of Age in a Digital World.

See, at the end of the day, this is all on us. The tech companies are not here to protect our kids or to model good digital citizenship and habits. They're here to make money. We have to be the role models. We have to set the guidelines and to start the conversations, even the tough ones.
