Trying to talk to the kids about good smartphone use habits and realizing I'm going to have to fix myself first. I grew up in a family that was able to help me learn, for example, how to limit my television time and recognize the tricks that broadcasters would use to encourage you to keep watching. But phones? My generation had zero guidance. I look at how the boomers got eaten alive by Fox News because they grew up without that guidance and it's terrifying. How much brain rot am I experiencing without even noticing?
