Mom of four girls Kari Kampakis is working to help girls everywhere navigate social media. What does that mean? Well it means getting to the heart of matter: what is your identity grounded in and whose approval are you seeking? These are the questions central to Kari’s new book Liked: Whose approval are you living for? for tween and teen girls.
In this episode Kari joins Krista and Alex as they talk through how to parent while not being the helicopter mom, helping girls decide when they’re ready to jump into the world of social media, and having boundaries with technology use when girls are with their friends in person. This is a mom-to-mom conversation that moms of both tween and teen boys and girls will find helpful.
When our kids leave for college will they be prepared to handle social media on their own? Will they have the tools to decide what is healthy? Will we as moms feel good about the social media use we modeled to them while they were home? All questions we hit on during this episode.

Liked: Whose Approval Are You Living For? by Kari Kampakis
“This is how we know what real love is: Jesus gave his life for us. So we should give our lives for our brothers and sisters. Suppose someone has enough to live and sees a brother or sister in need, but does not help. Then God’s love is not living in that person. My children, we should love people not only with words and talk, but by our actions and true caring.” 1 John 3:16-18
