Home Town star Erin Napier is inundated with comments after sharing her parenting rule

HGTV star Erin Napier wears many hats. The artist, designer and small town advocate shares her many talents with her fans Home Town:but her true passion shines through when she talks about her family.

Erin and her husband Ben have two young daughters, Helen and May, and are very careful about protecting their identities on social media, especially after a scary incident with a stranger in their hometown of Laurel, Mississippi. Parents now strive to keep their children safe as they grow up.

A recent interview with Kate Winslet resonated with Erin. The Oscar-winning actress spoke to the BBC about the dangers of smart phones and explained that her three children do not have social networks. Kate said: “I don’t have some magic formula. I don’t want to be accused of standing on a soapbox, but you can just say no. My kids don’t have social media and they haven’t had social media.”

Erin shared a snippet of the interview on her Instagram story, then wrote an in-depth post about why she and Ben made the same decision for their young daughters.

Erin posted a photo of herself from high school and described herself as an “extremely sensitive artistic kid.” She found joy in creating art and sharing it with her supportive family and friends. Erin explained. “I’m so grateful to have grown up without the crushing pressure of social media… the criticism or silence from ‘likes’ would hurt me deeply. It would shape me into someone, something else. I read it once. where we should only accept criticism from people who know us and love us well enough to deliver it gently and in a way that helps rather than hurts. Social media is the harshest criticism for teenagers, and the worst is twisted and broken. and the kind of misguided critic who misleads these young people without their fully developed emotional minds.”

Erin continued. “We and all our closest friends agreed that until our children grow up, they will not have smart phones bought with our money. That way they can’t say “but all my friends have”. Does it mean keeping them from interacting with smart phones? I don’t care…I’ve had success and I’d like to hear about it.”

And Erin was right. Her fans flooded her with thousands of comments. Many parents who agreed with his strategy left messages such as: “We need more of this kind of thinking. and “AMEN!! Thanks for using your platform well❤️.”

We love seeing this refreshing parenting perspective from Erin.
