Discussions About Your Digital Footprint
Have you ever wondered why you are seeing a specific ad on the Internet? Have you ever worried about who is tracking what you do online? In this episode of Growing Up With Tech, we'll discuss what a Digital Footprint is and why having a discussion with your kids about their online activity can bring awareness to what is, or is not being tracked and why that may important. You may have heard the saying "what happens on the Internet, stays on the Internet" - well, we'll discuss why this is and how some activities may leave some breadcrumbs that others can either collect about you or use against you. So join me in a discussion about Digital Footprints. I hope this allows you to chat with your kids about this so that they can make smarter choices but also understand how sometimes your digital footprint is also a good thing.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/growingupwithtech)

T.A.M.E. Your Tech With Dr. Beverly Pell
#011 - In this episode, I interview Dr. Beverly Pell of Smart Digital Kids for a discussion about tech use with our kids and her approach to T.A.M.E Your Tech. We discussed how kids at different ages use technology and how we, as parents, can talk with our kids about their use of tech. More interestingly, we consider the perspective of how parents model our behaviours with tech on our kids and how we sometimes may need to also tame our use of tech. We had a great conversation that I think will hit home for lots of parents. This was a great discussion and I know will be a popular episode. I hope you enjoy it and look forward to your comments and feedback.You can connect with Dr. Bev at:https://www.smartdigitalkids.com/https://www.instagram.com/smart_digital_kids/https://www.facebook.com/smartdigitalkidsSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/growingupwithtech)

So, as the summer comes to an end and kids get back to school do you think your kids will go back to using tech more often? Will you change your rules for screen time? Do you worry about the amount of screen time kids will have during the school year both during the day and after the school day ends?

YouTube & Easy Access To Information

Is it helpful? Has it had a negative effect on our kids or their life? That's what this quick episode of Growing Up With Tech is all about.
