Kids Are Our Greatest Resource with Tom Hayes

Today, guest host, Mandee Hamann, introduces Tom Hayes, who is a nationally recognized comedian, speaker, entrepreneur, writer, and creator of an animation titled Beantown Pals. Tom shares his personal story of being diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer at 13-years-old—learning that adversity leads to character development. Mandee and Tom discuss how the evolution of screens in our culture has changed how we parent, and Tom cautions parents that by taking away their child’s pain, it may be at the cost of their child’s character development. He urges families to consider that devices not only rob your child’s brain development, but also robs their emotional connections to the world. He encourages parents to make hard choices and ask themselves what they truly value as well as consider the legacy they are passing onto their family. Tom and Mandee’s conversation is engaging, thought provoking and straightforward—a quick listen that you’ll be glad you tuned in for. Subscribe, rate, and review this podcast to help spread the word.
