Great podcasts to help parents raise kids in a technology rich world

I was recommended these podcasts as someone wanting to make sure I’m doing what I can to help parent my kids in a technology rich world. They were very eye opening and informative. The interview on pornography and good pictures bad pictures were especially helpful. They include information that I am discussing with my husband and we are in the processing of making some changes in our home to both educate and protect our kids.

Educational & Inspiring

This podcast has been so eye-opening and educational for me as a mom of 4! The topics discussed are so important for people to be aware of, especially parents. It provides practical information which has helped me to engage in tough conversations with my kids. It has also encouraged me to bring awareness to other parents and people I know who work with kids. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone! Thank you Adrienne for your boldness to share about such sensitive issues. Your podcast inspires me.
