Smartphones and Our Children


On a recent podcast, Dr. Russell Moore answers the question: Should I Get My 12 Year Old a Smartphone? Every parent should carefully listen to and consider his 8-minute answer here.

(As a side note: Our daughter is now in her 30s and has never owned a smartphone. Our son didn’t get one until his mid-20s. We are happy to report that they have both survived.)
