Each one of your essays has me jumping up and down in agreement and wanting to chat about all of this soon! Have you heard of the Wait Unil 8th campaign for kids not getting phones until 8th grade? So sorry I missed you while you were up here - I'll come to the city and let's connect in October for sure!

Thanks for following along, Priya! I came across Wait Until 8th while reading the recent kids, mental health, and cellphone study. Seems like a hugely impactful effort if parents are able to get aligned

Sounds great - would love that :)

"Iā€™d long committed to staying on Instagram because I thought if I left, Iā€™d have a hard time keeping up with friends who lived on the other side of the country. Turns out, I do miss out on the small day-to-day moments that make it to their stories, but because I no longer waste hours in the depths of Instagram, I have more time for longer, deeper catch-up calls." - I feel the same way with Instagram :) you miss out on the more human moments trying to capture every little detail about someone's life. šŸ˜„ thanks for sharing :)

Turns out we have more capacity for deepening our relationships when our brains aren't foggy from the fleeting IG stories that all meld together. Thanks for reading, Kiran :)
