Social Media From a Kid’s Perspective – WHS 95 – The Wired Homeschool

Have you ever consider what your kids thinks about your use of social media? Recently, I watched a video by Mark Malkoff that really struck a nerve in me.

Many people start homeschooling because they want to spend more time with their family and end up spending more time with a screen in front of their face instead of getting some face time with their kids.

What do you think? Are you spending too much time with social media? Think you should spend more time with your kids and put the smartphone away?

Please consider nominating the podcast for the 9th Annual Podcast Awards.
