Kids’ Brains & Screens

The average child spends over 52 hours a week in front of electronic media. It is no longer a question as to why managing screens, from toddlers to teens, has quickly become the most significant parenting challenge today. This science-backed presentation provides the education families need to change their lifestyles and live family-centered rather than technology-centered. Topics: science behind healthy brain development, effects of screens on the developing brain, and symptoms of screen overuse.
