Kids, Tech & the Good Enough Digital Parent // with Katie Davis
Play • 26 min

Kids and technology use – we’ve all asked ourselves, how much screen time should kids have?  Am I giving my kids too much?  When should they get cell phones? The list goes on.

Today's guest, Dr. Katie Davis, is an Associate Professor at the University of Washington (UW) and Director of the UW Digital Youth Lab. For nearly twenty years, Dr. Davis has been researching the impact of digital technologies on young people’s learning, development, and well-being. 

She is the author of three books, including Technology’s Child: Digital Media’s Role in the Ages and Stages of Growing Up (March 2023).

Tune in to hear:

  • Why asking "Is screen time is good or bad?" isn't the right question
  • Her two-step tool to supporting healthy tech experiences
  • What self-directed tech experiences are - what to look for and what to avoid
  • A quick reframe that'll ease your mind about your tween or teen's tech time
  • How we can all be a Good Enough Digital Parent

It's 25 minutes you'll be glad you listened to!
