Cell phones and the internet can be great things but they can also be very dangerous! It's our job as parents to control what our kids are exposed to. Do you struggle with knowing how to handle all of the technology at our kids' disposal? Have you ever had your child see something they shouldn't have online? I feel really passionate about this subject and I hope these suggestions will be helpful!

I was telling my Dad that Facebook age should be lifted to eighteen. I am thirty two and am so glad Facebook was not part of my teenage years and I am glad I didn't have a smartphone as a teen. We played outside and when I was a teen I read a lot.

I agree 100%. I’m 37. I got my first cell phone at 17 when I started commuting to college. I had a 45 min call plan and there was no texting or internet access on phones yet. I held out a long time before getting a smart phone. I hate what I have allowed it to become for me, and my husband is even worse. I know we’re both bad examples for our kids, who I homeschool. I’m not an overly social person, so social media doesn’t tempt me all that much, unless you include Pinterest. However I am an obsessive researcher who “needs” answers to the questions in my head immediately, and I love listening to podcasts and watching/listening to YouTube videos (primarily theology, apologetics, homeschool, and parenting-related). In addition, I do pretty much all of my personal and business email on my phone and text when I need to talk to people (because I don’t really like talking on the phone). Though I still don’t think I’m nearly as bad as my husband, I know I’ve gotten worse than I’d like to admit, and it’s impacting my young kids. I keep them off electronics most of the time aside from practicing math facts, occasionally doing Reading Eggs, and some coding apps. Yet I realize that since they see me on my phone way too much, the damage is still being done. Thank you for this video.

I agree with your outlook on this subject! I have 9 and 10 year old daughters and it’s unbelievable how many of their friends already have phones and social media apps. My husband and I have agreed phones will not be happening for a very long time, because they have no need for one. We recently had a visit with our pediatrician and she was talking about the increase in depression due to social media. I’ve never talked to a parent who wishes they gave their child a phone sooner, but so, so, so many parents wish they would have waited.

I stay on site as well. Kiddos can play and hangout, I'm off to the side. Internet for me growing up was in high school and even that was limited-as in using Word or sneaking to play minesweeper! At home we'd have to buy those things in the store to get online (think it was AOL disk??) and then we got dial-up. I remember trying to find nsync videos, ha! But that was internet for us, and I remember getting in trouble for having aol instant messenger. I don't like being on the cell phone. I miss having a landline. My cell is a prepaid nonfancy, emergency only. But that is all I need so why pay for more when it won't be used. Kiddos are not allowed to use it, other than emergency. We hardly do internet, only if it's learning related and I don't have a materials source in hand or need more info, as in quick videos like crash course kids. I used to feel bad when their friends would talk about this or that on youtube, or other social media sites. Not anymore, especially when one of her friends said something about my child not being able to play some horse thing on an iPad, so she's a loser. Then my daughter started talking about her toy horses, that she brushes them and her barbies fit on them so they gallop around, lol. In a way it made me proud that a)she stuck up for herself and b) realized she is not missing out on anything. I'm happy I didn't give in to (pardon the phrase) trend of cell phones and kids must have this or that in terms of technology. The way I think is that my children are my concern, one of my duties is to protect them. That doesn't mean they are in a bubble. If that means limiting this or that, so be it. (my post is in no way looking down on other parenting styles. ). Sorry for the rant, it can be so hard to find others that are like-minded!

Hi Becky, so I am not a parent but I was a kid who spent half of their life around technology. I know what it is like to have an addiction to a device and I have to say your outlook on it is very realistic and aware as far as social media and the internet goes.

But I was wondering how does your older daughter feel about the restriction placed on her. I know that when I was her age I didn’t want my mom to even look at my phone. Do you guys ever argue about privacy??

Crystal James

So does your older daughter get any privacy? Or it’s limited?

Becky, does your daughter have her learner’s license & when she starts driving, will you allow her to have a phone?

Social media came out when I was in high school (around 2007-2009) and my parents and most of my friends parents didn't know enough to monitor it. We all had accounts and we all posted some dumb things haha I still delete things as they come out on my time hop. I wish people knew more to monitor back then lol

Great video Becky, you speak the truth. Very important for children and adults too. Our children observe us and how we handle technology. When they are in our care its our responsibility, once they have their own time as an adult they will learn and make mistakes and remember our words. ❤
Social media is hurtful and damaging to some people. It will become a bad habit to so many. We have to learn moderation as adults and teach our kids, especially not having grown up with phones and internet at hand.

Thank you for this! I’m thankful for this example of solid parenting. It is easy to go with the flow and let the world’s view chip away at your parenting resolve so having you that is walking a few steps ahead on the parenthood road to alert is to the pitfalls and exhort is to stay the course is a blessing!

Thank you for this Becky! Its something that has become an epidemic. Everywhere I go, I see kids staring down at a screen. I see adults walking around while looking down at a phone. I remember when I was a kid, my parents didn't have cell phones. We could actually leave the house and take trips without a phone! Amazing! We never heard phones ringing during church. I didn't get my first cell phone till I was 19. That's when I got my first real job, and had to drive 40 miles one way. Our oldest daughter is 9, and there is absolutely no reason for her to have a cell phone. Our kids are homeschooled so they're usually at home. We have taught them how to call 911 and family members on our phones in case of an emergency. They do have the Amazon Free time tablets, but they are password protected, and we have set restrictions on them. Our oldest does have a Messenger Kids profile. But everything she does, or anybody she messages appears on my phone so I can monitor her. And she can only chat with kids or adults that I approve, like family members or friends. There is so much evil on the internet, and our children are such precious gifts. We are responsible for guarding their hearts and minds. It pays to be extra vigilant!

Do you think you would give in if she was in school and wanting to fit in with everyone else? Peer pressure is so hard on them. I absolutely LOVE that you did this video! I have grown kids who got cell phones at a young age and didn’t know how to survive without them. It’s ridiculous but 1 of my girls would have a panic attack because her anxiety would skyrocket if she didn’t have it. Now I have adopted some kids and the teens are begging for phones that I don’t really want them having but I feel pressured to because “everyone has them” and even my grown kids pressure me and tell me they need them for socializing. You are an awesome momma ❤️

I sincerely wish all parents were like you!!! It is so refreshing to hear you talk about subjects like this, believe me. I don't have children so maybe I don't get a say in this, but I know I would never allow my child to have a phone, simply because they don't need one. I never had one until I was in my 20's. Admittedly they never came out here until I was about 20ish. My first phone was my husband's, (then boyfriends) old phone, as he got a new one. Honestly I wasn't interested in them. Yes I have a smartphone now and use Facebook, but I never use Instagram or Twitter etc, don't need more social media platforms. I try to limit how often I use it. But yeah I certainly don't depend on it. I think you are right about so much here, the world is so scary now, I wouldn't want to have a child just now.
I work with children, and I resent so much responsibility being taken away from parents. Everyone is pandered to and grow up feeling the world owes them everything. I feel like mental health is affected by social media, it can't be a coincidence. People or young people literally base their opinions of themselves based on how many likes or comments they get. It's crazy to think that when we were younger we would be shocked if someone read our diary. Now it's went to the extreme where people are offended if you don't read their daily update on Facebook or look at their holiday photos. Social media takes away more than it gives and it is disabling a lot of society.
I love that you just say, I say no, and that's it!! Best way to be Becky and I feel now so many parents just can't or don't say no to their children enough now.
Such an inspiring video, you would make a great lecturer. I mean that positively. Thanks for sharing 🙂

Love, love, love everything about your video. Good golly, if only more parents understood the dangers of phones and tech addiction. We just bought a phone for our 11 year old for the same reason, so she can call us if needed when away from home. Thank you for some additional ideas I hadn't thought about!

You are such a good mom Becky! You’re a good role model for your kids. You’re setting them up for success with good values & habits!! I’m 18 and have no children, however I love watching your channel. I want to raise my kids the same way! I appreciate traditional values. Keep it up Becky (:

Great video! We share similar views on this topic. It’s so addicting and I’m aware of it so I try not to be on my phone around my 4 year old daughter in an attempt to set a good example. If I have to look something up like directions or a recipe, I say it aloud so that she knows it’s something useful and not just to browse Instagram or YouTube.

Do you fear that once she turns 18/move out that she will be “exposed” to things at a exponential rate and not know how to handle it?
