#SaveTheKids Collin Kartchner's Message on the Dangers of Social Media & Smart Phones
At what age is it appropriate to give your kid a smartphone? How can we #savethekids from the dangers of social media? This is the work Collin Kartchner dedicated what ended up being the final years of his life to.
I had planned to have Collin on the Podcast to share his mission, but unfortunately, that time never came. Collin Kartchner passed away suddenly on October 20th, 2020. So, even though he cannot be here today, it is my honor to share his mission with all of you. He fought hard for our kids and it's in our hands now to carry the torch.
Today in our country and across the globe we are seeing an epidemic rise in the levels of anxiety, depression, and suicide among our teenagers. According to the CDC, suicide is the second leading cause of death for 10-24 year old Americans. The rate of death by suicide in people 10-24 years old increased 57.4% over the 10 year period from 2007 to 2018. Much of this epidemic has been attributed to the rise of cell phones and social media over the last decade. Let's dive in and tackle this important topic.
