204: Just Give Your Teen a Smartphone Already! + Buffy Season One


This episode might be a little controversial, but today we are taking a stand to help the kids! We back up our stance with some data from real-world examples. Our theory is that if your teen is entering jr. high, it is time to give them a smartphone.

Obviously we don’t want you to give them free rein over the device, we definitely recommend putting parental controls in place and using it as a learning tool. By not giving your teen a smartphone, you may actually be hurting their social interactions, and not helping them have healthy habits for the future.

We will also discuss Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season One. Not the best season of the bunch, and probably even my least favorite, but there are some classic moments we will discuss.
