    The Collin Kartchner Podcast - This is Your (Kid's) Brain on Video Games

    1:03:36

    Is your son/daughter playing video games a bit too much? Have you noticed changes in their attitude and behavior? Are you worried about what video games are doing to their developing brains and the impact that will have on their mental health and overall success in life?  According to Newzoo, gamers worldwide are expected to spend nearly $160 billion in 2020 on video games. Let that number sink in. Kids are becoming so addicted to video games today they are hurting family members or themselves when the games are taken away. I get texts from ER docs saying kids as young as 10 attempted suicide simply because mom took away Fortnite. We lost a 6th grader in the neighboring city to suicide last year because mom took the X-box away. These are NOT just forms of entertainment, and kids are NOT wired to regulate and slow down their gaming time. And the gaming industry is taking full advantage of this making billions. Parents need to be their kids' brakes, but maybe it's time to get really consider getting your kids away from these games for good. Today's episode I interview a pediatric neurologist Dr. John Condie to give us some serious wake-the-bleep-up information on what these videos games are doing to kids, why they're doing what they do to kids, and why it's way past time to break your kids free from the merciless clutches of that dang X-Box/PS4/DS. This is one of the most eye-opening interviews I have conducted on the podcast yet, something every parent and teenager should listen to. Now excuse me while I go scream into a pillow. #savethekids #ditchthevideogames*************************************************************************If you want to keep your kids safe and save their childhood from being stolen from a smart phone/social media apps, get your kid a Gabb Phone click HERE for pre-loaded discount or use "SAVETHEKIDS" in checkout.

    The Collin Kartchner Podcast - with Ronna Glickman

    59:34

    (TV commercial voice): Do you suffer from NMK Disease? Do you say things like "Oh... Not MY Kid" or "Not My School" or "Not MY neighborhood" or "I trust my kid" or "My kid would never do that"? Well for those suffering with NMK, there's hope, and today I talk with long-time educator and New York resident Ronna Glickman for insight on how to be cured of NMK. Side affects include delusional parenting, lack of boundary setting, over-trusting your tween/teen, bloviating on Facebook that your kids are perfect and would never mess up to the cringe eye-rolling of all your friends, and halitosis. If you or someone you love suffers from NMK Disorder, run them to a Collin Kartchner speech asap. You may save a life.

    The Collin Kartchner Podcast - On the Road in Idaho

    39:33

    FINALLY back speaking in person and I brought my mobile recording studio (mic + Zoom H4N) driving from Boise to McCall, Idaho, and wanted to talk about being emotionally present with your kids. Your emotional presence as a parent is the nutrient for your kids' development, and too many kids today are malnourished. I open up about a few things I/we do with our own kids each day so they know we as their parents love them, are here for them, they matter, they are important, and they are safe. ***********************************************************************************************If you want to keep your kids safe and save their childhood from being stolen from a smart phone/social media apps, get your kid a Gabb Phone click HERE for pre-loaded discount or use "SAVETHEKIDS" in checkout.

    The Collin Kartchner Podcast - Guess What? Your Daughter Looks at Porn, Too

    1:22:02

    “Only boys struggle with porn.” “Girls only care about social media not porn.”“This is just a guy issue.”*Dwight Schrute voice* FALSE. Countless times I have read messages from tween/teen girls saying “Collin, I’ve been struggling with pornography for ______ time and it’s eating me up inside, I feel horrible because porn is a guy issue, and I’m a girl, so what’s wrong with me?” Gah. Nothing is wrong with you. By some expert estimates 90+ of boys will have some struggle with pornography as a teenager and 70%+ of girls will too. Guess what parents, girls are escaping to porn for the same reasons boys are. Today my guest is a very brave teenager name Ashlee who shares her story of how she was exposed to porn simply by a book her mom had on the shelf that was a how-to-talk-to-your-kids-about-porn. After mom gave her an iPhone, it was all downhill from there. Not until just a few months ago, Ashlee lived a 2nd life hiding this dark secret from everyone in her life, but now, after finally telling a trusted friend about her struggle, she’s on the road to freedom. Since recording this episode I have had Ashlee join me speaking to 1000’s of people (virtually) with so may teenage girls sharing afterwards how her story changed their lives—inspiring so many of them to open up about their own porn struggle and being the healing process. This interview is pretty awesome, a must listen for parents of girls no matter the age, and for any girl struggling with pornography to hear you're not alone, and there's a way out. You can watch Ashlee tell her story to 1000's at utahcoalition.org or send her a message @ashleeayre on Instagram***********************************************************************************************If you want to keep your kids safe and save their childhood from being stolen from a smart phone/social media apps, get your kid a Gabb Phone click HERE for pre-loaded discount or use "SAVETHEKIDS" in checkout.

    Question I get a lot is "What do I do about my older teens who I gave a smart phone to years ago, they've been on Snapchat/IG since 11, I know it hurt their mental health so much, but I'm afraid to just take it all away. How do I go about putting the lion back into the cage?" Many times this issue has affected not just your teen negatively, but your entire family and your relationship with your son/daughter.

    The Collin Kartchner Podcast - Guest: Therapist Joe Dennis, CMCH

    1:39:27

    Joe Dennis, LCMHC, is back in studio today with his new J's for one of my favorite conversations thus far on The Collin Kartchner Podcast. We discuss 9/11, how hate is not a mental illness, the despicable things TikTok does to create trauma bonding among young users, how teen mental health issues are caused in part by decision fatigue, self-determination theory, and the struggles with this new generation of young adults finding authentic identity. This episode isn't like any thus far, and Joe drops so much wisdom on issues not discussed yet on this podcast-- hope you enjoy, and share it with your struggling college-age kids too.

    The Collin Kartchner Podcast - Protecting Childhood with Chris McKenna (PYE)

    43:02

    My guest today is the founder of Protect Young Eyes and father of 4, Chris McKenna. We talk about what's happening to an entire generation of children/teens/young people right under our noses, and what parents need to do to save their kids' childhoods. Chris was in a recent documentary called "Childhood 2.0" which you can, and must, watch. (It's FREE btw) A 100% accurate depiction of what tech/gaming/social media/smart phone companies have been doing to this generation of kids and how it's changing the definition of childhood for millions-- and what this will lead to if we don't change things NOW. Chris is a long-time advocate and fighter for kids and families-- we worked together in bringing legislation (google The Earn It Act) to the federal government to FIX APP RATINGS which would create a 3rd party independent rating board for social media apps and mobile games. If TikTok and Snapchat are willfully letting obscene, adult content on their apps, why are they then rated 12+?? Until the world wakes up, Chris and I and others will keep shouting til the vocal chords finally give up. Don't forget to download upcoming PYE App for parents. For parents of kids' doing online schooling with Chromebooks please thoroughly read Chris's article on locking down that tech safely HERE. ************************************************************************************************If you want to keep your kids safe and save their childhood from being stolen from a smart phone/social media apps, get your kid a Gabb Phone click HERE for pre-loaded discount or use "SAVETHEKIDS" in checkout.
