Her Cell Phone, Your New Best Friend (Kinda).

We get asked this one a lot.

Technology + Mother-Daughter Relationships.

(Technology + any relationship for that matter).

How do I set boundaries with her?

What boundaries do I set?

Why do conversations about technology produce so many intense emotions (tears, frustration, temporary panics…)? It’s “just” a phone, hellloooo?

And the list goes on, and on, and on…

You feel us?

Technology isn’t going anywhere, so it’s time for us to collectively figure out how to make it a tool for connection in our relationship– but not a replacement for real connection– (and not a tool for disconnect.)

Once you’ve gotten a chance to check out the video, leave us a comment below— because collective wisdom rocks, and we want to hear your take. We need each other, mama.
