As a mother of two young boys in the digital age, country star Carrie Underwood knows she can’t completely avoid technology.
The singer, married to former NHL player Mike Fisher, warns that children are deeply affected by screen time, as she has noticed a change in her own children’s behavior when they consume a lot of television .
“It’s such a battle, isn’t it? Even television… I notice that if they watch too much television, it’s like they change their attitude. And I’m like, ” Why are you in a bad mood? What are we doing ? Oh…” she said while appearing on “Today.”

“Especially like social media and that sort of thing, as long as possible.”

Her sons, Isaiah, 7, and Jacob, 3, began to realize their mother’s celebrity status.
“They saw me on stage and I feel like the first time my oldest, especially, started having ideas was when his friends were saying something and it was like, ‘Oh ‘Is that different? I didn’t know that was the case’. It’s not normal,” she explained.
“So they would come home and say, ‘They said they saw you on TV.'”
