Equipping our children for their digital lives — Dean McCoubrey (MySociaLife.com | Founder)
In this episode I talk to Dean McCoubrey about how to be a better parent to digitally connected children.
Dean is a successful media entrepreneur and the founder of MySociaLife (www.mysocialife.com), an education company that examines the invisible physiological, emotional, mental and neurological influences of working on smart devices and in social media, and equips caregivers and educators with the tools to empower children for smarter internet usage.
We discuss the story of his personal journey from professional burnout into therapy and the discovery of new purpose in helping young people navigate their digital decision-making with more intention and responsibility. We also discuss some practical tips for parents looking to improve their relationship with their teenagers, and specifically in regards to their online activity.
'This profound well of experience that sits inside you will respond to all sorts of stimuli and make you behave in a certain way, and that can get you intro trouble. So you need to understand partly yourself, and partly the stimulus.' -- Dean McCoubrey
