How do we teach children to proceed carefully in the digital world even as technology reshapes our communities, our culture, and our lives? In this panel discussion, experts in media, child behavior and developmental psychology discuss 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.
