Cellphones have become a fact of life, with children as young as eight (yes, eight!) getting their very own “devices.” In this episode I talk to Catherine Pearlman—licensed clinical social worker and parenting expert—about her book,  First Phone. I love this book! In it, she speaks directly to eight- to twelve-year-old children about digital safety in a manner that is playful, engaging, and age-appropriate.

Takeaways

  1. Even if your child doesn’t have their own phone, they will be around phones through their friends
  2. Kids need a resource on digital safety, etiquette, self-care and more to empower them to make better choices
  3. We can make easy, quick fixes to help some of the most entrenched problems with cellphones
