How do we teach children to proceed carefully in the digital world even as technology reshapes our communities, our culture and our lives? Please join us Monday, April 16 for a luncheon and panel discussion where experts in media, child behavior and developmental psychology will talk about the impact of the always-online world on youth mental health.
Kids and teens spend hours onscreen and online every day. Activist investors are challenging tech giants like Apple to consider the negative effects of their products. But parents are still the most important influence in a child’s life, and our panelists will discuss research and clinical experience that can help kids reap the benefits of technology and minimize the risks at every age.
The panel discussion, moderated by comedian, author, actress, producer and mother, Ali Wentworth, will feature David Anderson, PhD, Clinical Psychologist, Senior Director, ADHD and Behavior Disorders Center at the Child Mind Institute and Yalda T. Uhls, MBA, PhD, adjunct professor in child psychology at UCLA, Senior Advisor, Youth Development at Common Sense Media and author of Media Moms and Digital Dads: A Fact Not Fear Approach to Parenting in the Digital Age.
