"As parents, we worry about our kids' health - but we often don't consider how emotionally destructive technology can be. The reality is that seemingly ordinary practices - from social media use to Smartphone communication - can impact the mental health of our youth and pose not-so-obvious dangers."
"How is it that the people we love the most - our teens - are the very same people who drive us the craziest?! Parents of teens often discover that good communication and harmony at home is hard to find. This presentation addresses parents' thirst for new perspectives, ideas, and language to better connect with their teen."
