Making the Virtual Virtuous: Common-Sense Guidelines for Raising Kids in the Digital Age
Managing modern technology can be exhausting and stressful, potentially prompting us to ask – do we use it or does it use us? It’s an even bigger challenge for parents trying to figure out how to raise healthy children in the digital age. Many families struggle as they try to maintain common-sense limits while seeking balance in using media as a resource and entertainment. In this podcast, developmental pediatrician Dr. Mark Bertin, child psychologist Dr. Chris Willard, and Campaign for Commercial-Free Childhood’s screen time program manager Jean Rogers engage in a conversation moderated by Samira Sine, New York Director of Common Sense Media. Starting with the premise that technology is not inherently good or bad, you’ll get an overview of current media research alongside practical, realistic, and engaging, family-friendly tools that integrate mindfulness while supporting long term wellbeing in your children. The evening was co-sponsored by Common Sense Media and Campaign for Commercial-Free Childhood.
