What parent is not struggling to get their teen off their phones or to get them to stop gaming? Most teens struggle to switch from the online world back into the real world. This is why your teen gets angry with you when you tell them to get off the phone or have a fit when you take their phone at night. But some teens surpass the normal struggles and become addicted to gaming or social media and choose that over interacting in the real world. In this episode, we talk about the 8 signs that your teens are at risk for technology addiction and how to break those digital chains. We also talk about the 4 steps for parenting in the digital age.
