Electronic devices and social media are the biggest influences on kids today. As a mother of two teenage boys, Janice is no stranger to the influence of technology on today’s youth.

Psychotherapist and Family Therapist Thomas Kersting joins Janice to discuss his new book, Raising Healthy Teenagers: Equipping Your Child to Navigate the Pitfalls and Dangers of Teen Life.

Thomas shares his best advice when it comes to what’s happening in this rapidly changing world and highlights the impact that our devices have on both parents and children. Thomas later unpacks the unique challenges teens face today, including isolation from friends and family, increased screen time, and a steady stream of fear-based media.
