Cultivating Good Conversations about Screen Issues

Dr Jenny Brown
May 17, 2023

Personal technology is something that most parents did not have when they were children and it can be difficult to navigate. Dr Jenny Brown highlights how personal connection is more effective than any protective app.

"What is the effect of parents representing themselves to their children instead of trying to fix or change their children? A parent’s connection is especially relevant when helping children navigate their screens. Parents can have regular, curious conversations with their children about what is safe and healthy online and what is dangerous and unhealthy. These conversations are reserved for calm moments as a parent is involved in their pre-teen’s screen use."
