Ben and Erin Napier on “Hometown”

Earlier this week, fan favorite HGTV host Erin Napier shared a throwback photo of her high school days Instagramalong with an important message in the caption about the dangers of social media.

“That was me in 11th grade. There were no smartphones. I loved making art and shooting with the Canon SLR I bought with my money while I was making music at the downtown cafe,” Napier wrote. She went on to describe the things she would photograph, saying that she printed out her favorite shots and pasted them into an album to show to her parents, who “encouraged me, so I kept going, making art and tried new things. I felt confident and not worried at all if other girls in my class were into that sort of thing. I am so thankful that I grew up without the overwhelming pressure of social media. As a highly sensitive artistic child, the criticism or silence of likes would have hurt me deeply. It would have shaped me into someone, something else.”

Hear below how Napier plans to address the issue of social media with her daughters.


Erin Napier won’t buy her daughter a smartphone

Erin Napier’s caption went on to describe how she believes social media should only be used by adults who are capable of “toughest criticism of them all,” and identify which comments to listen to and not listen to. She then said she wants to make sure her daughters Helen and Mae aren’t faced with this criticism too young and that she and her husband Ben have made a plan to keep their daughters offline for as long as possible.

“In short, this is a place for adults who know who and what they are,” Erin wrote, “who have the discernment to discard what is not useful. We and all of our closest friends have agreed that our children will not buy smartphones at our expense until they are adults. That way they can’t say, “But all my friends have one.”

Fans loved the Napiers’ idea of ​​not giving their kids smartphones at a young age, and one fan wrote, “Steve Jobs didn’t let his kids have devices; that says so much.”

One fan didn’t quite agree with Erin’s opinion, writing, “Raising teenagers is so easy when you have toddlers/preschoolers,” and in a later reply said he was no longer following her account, to which Erin simply replied, “Sounds like it Good. Peace ✌🏻”.


Erin Napier recently shut down pregnancy speculation on the internet

Erin Napier isn’t afraid to respond to a fan comment if she has something to say. Napier recently addressed speculation she was pregnant after not attending a coffee tasting session on her show Home Town.

“to: Last night’s episode, I’m not expecting anything, I just don’t drink coffee. I will not expect. You don’t have to google and think we’re dropping cryptic clues. There are no clues. Our family is complete. It’s weird and a bit rude to keep speculating about whether a woman is pregnant,” Napier wrote in an Instagram story. Although there was only one comment asking if she was pregnant at the time, Napier wanted to nip the issue in the bud.
