    Dear Savvy: What if my child is gaming all night?

    Dear Savvy: What if my child is gaming all night?

    2020 has brought numerous changes to our households. During the lockdown, our normal typically structured daily routine loosened, and many of us (parents and kids alike) became more involved with gaming. Even though our daily schedule has changed again, many kids are staying up later and even gaming all night. You may be wondering what to do, especially as the Holidays approach.

Simple and actionable tools to support parents!

I really appreciate the simple tools and resources mentioned in this podcast. I especially appreciate the recap at the end and challenges given to help me engage my children in discussions about technology and pornography. If I had one suggestion it would be to make the episodes shorter. I’d love the episodes to be 10 minutes in length so I can listen in bite size pieces. Overall I love the podcast and will be sharing it with my friends!
