Episode Info:

The primary role of a parent is to raise our kids into mature adults. This includes people who know how to do their own laundry, work, pay a few bills, recycle and maybe even get their own place to live! 

However, in the age of constant electronic connection, parents have a new item in their job description: raising digitally mature adults.  

Where do you begin? How do you know that maturity actually exists? Listen to this episode as a prompt for the discussion questions below.


  • How do you define “digital maturity?” Does it differ from what you heard in the episode?
  • From your perspective, which seems to be the biggest challenge for your kids:
  • WHEN they use it
  • HOW MUCH they use it, or 
  • WHY they use it?
  • Ask your kids to identify their challenges, too. Do they match?
  • What are YOUR challenges with tech? (Remember, you don't get off the hook!) 
  • What should each of you do in response to these challenges?
  • How do you rate your ability to discuss your family tech struggles? Discuss how you can incorporate the language of WHEN/HOW MUCH/WHY into regular conversations.
