Before our kids get a device, we need to identify: What is the function desired?, What is the value of the device? and What is the desired outcome? We need to create boundaries and restrictions with our kids and show them that we support them, so they will come to us when there is an issue. Learn why not all screen time is bad. Kids want us to listen, strategize and give them tactical solutions. We need to learn to acknowledge their needs and offer support and understanding. Criteria, markers for digital success: Grades, Behavior, Social/Emotional wellness Katey tells us that If we do 1 thing: Randomly check our kids phone, Have a central charging station - NO Phones in the bedroom (parents too!).  To improve communication: The No Trouble Bubble, Tech Night Tuesday and Crash & Tell For more information on how to stay on top of apps and social media, check out Katey's recommendations: Websites:, Documentaries: #Being 13, Screenagers Books: Glowkids, Untangled, Saving our Sons, The Self Driven Child, IGEN Routers: Apps: BARK Find Bev & Heather at: Instagram: Bitchesbebrave Facebook: Being Brave Email: Twitter: Bitchesbebrave
