The Patrick Madrid Show: June 25, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick discusses how the pervasive use of smartphones and screens impacts young ones and the vital role parents play in setting boundaries. He discusses the importance of instilling values, setting firm boundaries, and the necessity of faith and family as foundations in a tech-saturated world. From banning smartphones and setting screen-time limits to understanding the psychological impact of being constantly “plugged in,” Patrick explores practical strategies for parents to reclaim their children’s attention and well-being.
