Guest Hillary Wilkinson is a wife, mom, educator and co-founder of Healthy Screen Habits, a non-profit organization that works with community leaders to educate and empower families to create healthy habits for screen use. The organization helps families establish healthy screen habits through raising awareness, providing tools, and creating change.
In this episode, Hillary and I discuss how technology has changed humanity and what studies are showing about it’s affect on our brains and human development.
This is information we all should be aware of so we can be mindful in the use of technology so that it is helpful to us instead of harmful to our families and society in general.

Hey Friends! I’ve been using an app called Bark to keep my kids safe online. It’s such a cool program that I wanted to share it with you. It monitors your kids phones and 24 different internet platforms including social media, YouTube and their emails – and it sends parents notifications only when sketchy activity pops up — things like sexting, cyberbullying or online predators. It’s a no-brainer and I’m all about keeping it simple and sharing so I secured a discount for you!
