8 hours and 39 minutes. That’s how much time our teenagers spend glued to their screens EVERY DAY.
Screen time is a huge issue in today’s digital world and I’m thrilled to have Dino Ambrosi on the show today. Dino is the founder of Project Reboot, and has helped over 4,000 teens develop better digital habits.
Dino explains why pulling the plug on social media isn’t the answer to our kids’ digital addictions. He believes there’s a balanced approach, one that educates and empowers our kids to form genuine connections in the real world. Enjoy!

Not able to travel? We got you. Join our next online event, built just for kickass dads who know there’s more to learn. FrontRowDads.com/summit
FRD is solving a huge problem for dads. Our culture has turned “Dad” into a joke. Go ahead, google Dad and you’ll find Dad Bod, Dad Jokes, Dad Weed, etc. Culturally, it’s a Homer Simpson mentality, and it’s BS.
Our community is built for solid men. Men with range. Those who are badass, and know there’s still more to learn, together.
Most guys find it hard to find “their crew.” Finding other committed men, who are successful in life, and want to put family first – these guys are rare. Is this you?
In FRD, hundreds of men from all over the world show up for each other, to share resources and raise the bar of fatherhood (our core values)
If you’re reading this, you want to grow. Podcasts are great, but guys… when you’re ready to stop just listening to content, and want to JOIN the conversations – the FRD brotherhood is ready for you.
