In this episode of the Digital Parent Podcast I was joined by psychologist Jocelyn Brewer who is the creator of Digital Nutrition. Digital Nutrition is Jocelyn’s framework for parents to understand the visual nutritional value of content that children consume on mobile apps, laptops, iPods, desktop, etc. Unlike experts who strongly recommend children going on a Digital Diet, Jocelyn believes that kids are born in an online society which makes it impossible for them to walk away from technology.
She does not believe in the concept of internet addiction. Jocelyn counter argument is for parents to find nutritional online content that will feed their soul .Jocelyn and I discussed ways parents can locate good nutritional content online that has a positive effects on teens minds and bodies.
