Ep. 151: Social Media Reform

Social Media is a hot mess – which is making young people a hot mess of mental health, lack of purpose, and a failure to flourish. Everyone knows this, but how can social media be reformed? Change must come. Will it be voluntarily through Big Tech, legislatively through Government, or wisely and bravely through Parents?

In this episode, Kelly & Chelsea evaluate the present federal and state legislative initiatives to reform social media. By explaining the almost (but not completely) insurmountable obstacles, they demonstrate to parents where the hope of change really lies.
