Bay Area parents are more aware than most of how technology and connectivity are reshaping our communities, our cultures and our lives. Raising children, however, still comes with timeless joys and hurdles, and may include childhood emotional, behavioral and learning challenges. In this panel discussion, expert clinicians discuss the impact of technology on youth mental health and the limits — of blaming technology for human nature, or relying on it for a quick fix. Parents are still the most important influence in a child’s life, and meeting that responsibility with education and open communication is key.
