235: Keeping Tech in Check, the Battle is Real! With Gaia Bernstein

Technology has gotten out of hand…at home and within the school system. Many kids are seeking technology dopamine hits from a very young age, and it has clearly become a big problem. Parents are left feeling powerless in the daily battle against tech companies, excessive screen time, and their effect on children. The fight is real, and the consequences of losing it have never been more urgent. And keeping the tech in check is too much to put on parents!

Gaia Bernstein is an Author, a Law Professor and Co-Director of the Institute for Privacy Protection and Co-Director of the Gibbons Institute for Law Science and Technology at the Seton Hall University School of Law.  On today’s episode, Gaia and Randi discuss the importance of making legal changes to help with regulating technology. Managing the constant battle of our kids being hooked on tech is too much for any parent. We need our legal system to help us keep our kids’ brains safe.  Tech addiction is very dangerous.  Many experts have reported a mental health state of emergency for kids. 

While Gaia is working on the legal side of it, Randi offers real time suggestions of changes that can be made inside the home. Enjoy this VERY relevant conversation to help our kids keep tech in check.
