Our children live in a wonderfully terrifying world of tech that can both build and destroy. It can feel overwhelming and exhausting to stay on top of all the changes and trust our kids are safe. We invited a teen who shares his journey from almost being destroyed by pornography, shame, and depression to now helping parents and teens understand how they can navigate this world safely. His name is Smith Alley and he’s courageously stepping into the light to let others know healing is possible. In this episode, we discuss:

  • Smith’s story
  • What it means to live life bigger
  • What he want parents to know about the dangers of pornography, tech, and social media
  • How parents can help their kids navigate today’s tech challenges
  • How speaking up about his story has helped him in his personal recovery
