Are your kids addicted to the internet?

On The Show:

We would love for you to weigh in on this subject! Our Lunch Break hosts, Art Eddy and Jon Finkel talk about this issue and share a few stories.

Here is what some of our audience said: 

John Plageman TV and Atari was addictive. We turned out just fine. The same debate was in the 1970’s that you are having now. (Atari coming out in the late 70’s).

Noelle Wever Im addicted to the internet.
Brian Huerta Parents have become overall soft. Kids will mimic what they see all day long, and with most adults out there buried in their screens all day long says a lot.
AJ CliffI grew up with technology (1990 baby) and internet, seeing how amazing it is now compared to what it was. It’s impossible to limit the kids exposure to it.
Mark Salling YouTube and some social media create a feeling of personal investment and inclusiveness. It sucks kids right into believing they’re valued and part of the tribe.
