Ep. 133: Constant Companion – A Review of Common Sense Media’s Report

Common Sense Media published research about a week in the life of a young person’s smartphone use, and they named it “Constant Companion.” In today’s episode, Kelly and Chelsea review the key findings in the study as well as unpack the implications of a smartphone as a “constant companion” in the lives of young people today. As always, we look at these findings through the lens of Scripture and provide suggested solutions.
