This one-hour seminar is designed to equip you to make healthy choices for your children’s screen use. It covers the brain science behind screen use during all developmental stages, from toddlers to teens. You’ll learn about the effects of video games, smartphone use, and social media as we present the latest research, medical facts, and the signs and symptoms of overuse.

Our Solution Workshops will equip you with the tools needed to use all forms of technology wisely and rid your home of screen conflicts. We will take you behind the scenes and show you how to make practical changes in your  day-to-day life in order to balance screen use at different ages. Individual workshop topics cover video games (VG), and smartphones & social media (SM).
