“Look up to God, not down at your phone, and enjoy the view.” My guest for today’s episode is Arlene Pellicane. Arlene is a speaker, author, media personality, and blogger. She has written six books including on of my favorites, Growing Up Social (which she wrote with Dr. Gary Chapman). Arlene has appeared on the Today Show, Focus on the Family, Fox & Friends, and Family Life Today among many others and has written for several national magazines. She is a graduate from Biola and Regent Universities. Before becoming a speaker and author, she served as a features reporter for The 700 Club and associate director for Turning Point Television with David Jeremiah. Arlene lives in a happy home in San Diego with her husband James and kids Ethan, Noelle, and Lucy. Welcome Arlene and I first met when she was presenting a parenting workshop at Rock Church in San Diego. I was so inspired by what she shared that I refer to her often when I am talking with parents about kids and technology. Today Arlene shares why she felt inspired to research and write about families and our screen-driven world, as well as practical tips for both children and parents to become more disciplined in their use of technology, build stronger face-to-face relationships, and create positive digital habits in their lives.
