It’s almost June 1st which means guess what? It’s 💥NATIONAL DELETE SNAPCHAT DAY💥 What started 3 years ago has become a day of liberation for 1000’s of teenagers. “Snapchat is hands down the worst app ever created” says the deputy I interviewed this week and I agree 110%. Click on my highlight stories and you can see why this app needs to go. Hundreds of articles of sexual predators arrested and their app of choice is always Snapchat. Articles on the Snapchat discover page containing pornographic material which they say is OK for children. Kids sharing me heart breaking stories of cyber bullying or being sextorted, or being filmed in the locker and someone shared it to the school on Snapchat. I’ve shared 100’s of messages of CHILDREN as young as SIX being asked for naked photos of themselves by grown adults on this app. It’s gotta go. Go delete it. Don’t support it. 3 years ago I got 1200 messages from teenagers who all deleted Snapchat that day... when I asked almost all of them “How do you feel right now?” the #1 reply was...... “I feel FREE.” I’m doing a drawing for kids who join in for a new pair of the upcoming JORDAN Retro 6’s dropping next week. Check my story today for more info. Snapchat, I only really hate maybe 5 things in this world, and 3 of them are YOU. Buh bye. #NDSCD #NationalDeleteSnapchatDay #byeSatan
Last week I saw this video. It blew me away. I watched jt 2 more times. It blew me away 2 more times. I messaged @joshualukesmith in Bath, England, if he’d be willing to share his story which is episode 5 of my podcast avail today. This video is what inspired @lukepeachtree to write his story I filmed and shared a few days ago. Click the link in my bio or head to your podcast app and listen. Listen with your teenagers. And for the folks out there struggling with porn and you’re in a relationship and don’t know what to do, watch it. I promise... you’ll be inspired. Porn is something crippling lives and suffocating relationships but it can be just a piece of your old self you left for good. Like Josh did. Like Luke did. Like so many did. And congrats to Josh and his beautiful wife on their new baby girl. Head to Joshs page to watch the entire video. #lovekillsporn
This is my oldest, Avery. Avery turned 14 yesterday. Avery has no phone, no social media. Avery is happy, kind, she’s silly and fun, she has a big group of awesome friends, and she loves life. And no smart phone is one of reasons why she’s such a happy kid...her words. Today I shared on my podcast why she nor any of our kids have phones or social media, why we did this, how we do this, and why you can and should to. Happy Bday Weester, keep being a kid.
Episode 3 of The Collin Kartchner Podcast is up and it’s all about Anxiety with our resident expert Jeff Gregson, CMCH. (Swipe left for a sample ) Jeff is an amazing therapist, dad, outdoorsman, his website is AllThingsAnxiety.com. We talked about what anxiety is, what’s causing it in our kids and our homes, and then Jeff lays out step by step how to successfully deal and turn it into a super power. If you’re a parent or a teenager dealing with this 🙋🏼♂️🙋🏼🙋🏻♀️ listen and take notes— I filled up 2 pages. If the episode isn’t showing up for you yet, make sure to subscribe and it’ll be there. Avail on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Stitcher, and all the others. Link in bio. Share it with your family, friends, siblings, um pets who hate the 4th of July fireworks 🧨 #savethekids
This week I invited Luke on my podcast to share his story about pornography. He wrote a poem about it that left me speechless. I asked him if he would be willing to meet up the next day so I could film him doing it live which we could share to the world, and he said yes. Two days ago, we had the biggest storm of the year and we were supposed to meet up that evening to shoot this. I thought no way it would happen, but after we met up, the storm stopped, and the light shined again. “Luke” means “one who brings the light” and that’s exactly what he does here. Please watch it and feel what I felt. It’s gut-wrenching and inspiring. It’s a story that must be told. Please share with your kids, your spouse, your friends. 1.2M kids each are sold like items on a shelf, and porn fuels it all. And every time you look away, shut it off, every time you stand up and say no to the people spreading it around, you are filling the heroes throne. You are being these kids’ hero. “There’s real connection in this world to be found through all the hardness, there’s a flame of truth and love if were all just willing to spark it.” Thank you Luke for sparking truth. Porn kills children. @lukepeachtree
Podcast 2 was all about Porn and specifically how one amazing teenager broke free in his own words. So many of you have already listened, so many messages saying it was life changing, this is a must for parents and your teenagers too. Porn isn’t going away, your kids will be exposed, it’s time to bring light to the darkness. Thank you Luke for being so brave to share your story. The Collin Kartchner Podcast launched yesterday and it’s already #2 on Apple Kids & Family section. Link to Luke’s story in bio. Today I’m interviewing an amazing therapist about anxiety and then two high schoolers about what it’s like being teenagers and what they wish all parents knew. Email me your questions or topics you want more of heycollin @savethekids .us 🙌🏼

*grabs mic* Stop 🛑 worrying about what other people think about your kids, stop comparing your kids to other people’s kids, stop putting pressure on them to be a certain way, or act a certain way, or score all the goals, or to be the best at everything they do, just so you look good in front of your friends & neighbors...and you and your kids will be happier. The end. *drops mic*

My favorite person in the entire universe is having a birthday today🎉BIG 39🎉Liz is the most loving, loyal, soft-hearted and beautiful human....every time you see her it’s like finding a $20 bill in an old pair of jeans or eating fried ice cream for breakfast. She makes everything in this life and world better. And as a mom to our 4 kids they are hashtag blessed and they know it. She never is too busy to just lay in their beds and let them talk for an hour or sit on the floor and talk about boys or play an intense game of Jenga. I took her on her first date 23 years we have *checks clipboard* eternity to go🤗 If you’re lucky to be someone who really knows her, you know can count on her for anything and if you’re surrounded and feel like giving up on life she will fight for you like a freaking Doberman. And if you get her some caffeine and some obnoxious dance music, roll camera and BUCKLE UP. Happy Birthday babe I ain’t shaving this off yet #PIVOT #imwearinymyslippiestloafers *Drop her a birthday wish 👇🏼 May the 4th be with you*
Absolutely. Beautiful. Story. I hope we never go back to the way things were, especially for kids and families and society. Our way was BROKEN. We were lost. We forgot what it meant to be human. We forgot what it meant to be families. Let’s go back to a better normal with REAL connection....real empathy, real kindness, real understanding, real family time, real parenting, and all good and all the crap that comes with that. Let’s go back to the way things are supposed to be. Kids and their friends playing outside til the street lamp comes on again. Dads standing on front porches at dinner time doing that death-curling Velociraptor whistle that even now if I heard I’d instinctively grab my baseball mitt and sprint home. Families at the dinner table again laughing so hard that no one wants to “may I please be excused?”. We talk about these things saying “remember the good old days?” like we can’t bring those days back, when we absolutely can. I’m tired of kids telling me “every day I come home from school and just go to my room and look at my phone or play video games all night alone...while my parents never look up from their phones anymore.” I’m tired of trying to answer a 6th graders question of, “How do I get my dad/mom off their phone? I feel like I don’t even exist.” And I’m tired of kids breaking under the immense pressure we and society all put on them to be perfect and be the best at everything all the time. I want kids to be kids again. It’s time for a the big RESET. I know we can I hope we do I pray it happens for the kids. Thank you, you stupid savage Flaming Hot Cheeto-looking virus for forcing us all to wake up. Now go away forever? Tag your loved ones and share! (Full video link in bio ).
This is what boredom + ADD can accomplish: I’m voicing over talent submissions for fun. I think it adds a special touch ¯\_(ツ )_/¯ 100% chance I will delete this later 😂
