Technology & Screen Time With Alyssa: This Podcast is Now Officially Geriatric!
On this episode Sonia and Jessica are joined by Alyssa, who happens to be a former elementary school teacher, to discuss technology and screen time for little ones. They weigh in on facing the challenges of balancing screen time, parental controls, internet safety, promoting digital well-being, tech-free activities, and educational technology options. They also discuss the fact that geriatric moms are ‘too old’ to have their wisdom teeth removed, at some point Sonia mistakenly calls Khloe Kardashian Kourtney a few times (and no one notices). Also, when in doubt, there’s always Ms. Rachel, so we should all feel #Grateful and #Blessed. For a full list of resources mentioned on this episode, visit the show notes here!
