Talking to your teens about video games. This is Part 5 of a 5 part video blog (vlog) series where we will be looking at trying to change the narrative of how we speak to our kids about technology. We will look at current ways parents talk to teens about tech and then look at a new narrative that teens will respond to better. We need to move from telling to teaching. Today we look at a new way to talk to our kids around the conversations on Video games.

There are 6 chapters on parenting as well as a chapter on media that goes more into detail on this topic in my book Parenting: Navigating Everything. Click Here.

The first 6 chapters of my book helps with that relationship.
