In today's episode, Mandee is joined by Jason and Lisa Frost, founders of the nonprofit organization, Wired Human, and authors of the book, The Glass Between Us: Empowering Youth to Combat Digital Exploitation - A Value-Based Approach to Screen-Driven Challenges. They have worked with teens, individually and together, for almost a decade through speaking engagements, nature-focused camps, and teaching in community-based settings. Jason and Lisa share their passion and enthusiasm in encouraging the next generation, our teens, to be digital pioneers in tackling the challenges toxic screen use presents to their enjoyment in living a full life. The values of authenticity, leadership, and the power of presence in cultivating deep, fulfilling relationships are the focus to help teens create the future they desire.
Their primary message is one of hope and that "you are enough" in this digital age. They encourage teens to socially connect with each other in real life to discover the truth of the inherent value of themselves, and ultimately their generation, that cannot be found through a screen.
In listening to this episode, you will find yourself inspired by their message and ready to help your teen, as well as your family, start the journey of self-discovery through building real-life relationships.
