Big Kids: It's Time To Stop Feeling Guilty About Gaming
Welcome to This Glorious Mess Big Kids. A twice-weekly look at parenting as it really is. Confusing, exhausting, inspiring, funny, and full of surprises. So many surprises.
"My friends keep telling me how addictive gaming is for teens and that I should get them off the games now! .... Should I? And if I should, how the hell would I?"
During the week, we received this listener dilemma and so for today's episode, we took it to an expert, Jocelyn Brewer, mother, teacher, writer, and psychologist with a specialisation in cyberpsychology. Jocelyn speaks to the balance between green time and screen time, when it's time to get off the games, and how to rationalise gaming in a world of worried gaming rhetoric.
Hosts:Holly Wainwright & Andrew Daddo
Producer: Mikayla Floriano and Emmeline Peterson
