Season 02 : Episode 01 : 496 Pickups aka Parents Overusing Devices
We know that most adults are just as addicted to their devices as their children. The rule at the dinner table is no phones – but somehow dad or mom have theirs because they’re “working.” The idea that only kids are making mistakes with technology is absurd. If you’re sick of your parents yelling at you about your phone use, but your parents are doing the same things, this episode will give you some strategies in how you can confront your parents (in a good way) about your parent’s device overuse.
