It’s Time To Ask, Why?

This week I moderated a youth panel, and one of the teens called their phone “a safety blanket.” I asked them to share more about what they meant by that term, and they replied:

“Well, just in case something really bad goes down at school — you know what I’m talking about — I need it to call my mom and sister.”

What are we doing to kids?
