51: The Overprivileged Parent

March 15, 2015 at 9:30AM • 55 minutes • Wiki Entry

In this week’s meeting, John Sextro of 5by5's iOhYes works through step five by admitting he spoils his four children with the latest and greatest gadgets & devices, the perils of raising kids in this hyper-connected technological age, and the obvious disciplinary double-standard when he personally has a five-computer home office setup.

In addition, we discuss how YouTube is completely replacing TV for kids, parents pimping out their kids for pageviews, if it's healthy for children to have web personalities as surrogate friends, and why Snapchat scares the crap of out of most parents.
