Event description

Description

Join us to develop a practical plan to manage technology use and support Common Sense Media for more research on it's impact on children & teens.

Technology is everywhere and it is here to stay.

  • Tweens and teens are averaging 6-9 hours of screen time – that’s NOT including school & homework use! (Common Sense 2015 Census)

  • Technology use is increasingly being linked to anxiety, depression, and body image disturbance.

  • Internet Addiction Disorder has recently become a medical diagnosis (International Classification of Disease 2018)

  • 59% of teens have been bullied online (The Atlantic, 2018)

Yet, technology has also brought us profound opportunties for communication, collaboration, & innovation.

So how can we best guide our children/students towards optimizing the benefits of technology while minimizing the risks?

In this live Webinar & Q & A, Dr. Shimi Kang will present The Healthy Tech Diet Solution!

Just like the foods we consume impact our bodies; the technology we consume impacts our minds. In this presentation, you will learn the latest science about:

- how our brains "metabolize" the technology experience to 6 main neurochemicals that will help you distinguish healthy tech. vs. "snack" tech.vs. toxic tech.

- emerging patterns of consumption such as "boys are from Xbox & girls are from Instagram"

- how to establish a healthy tech diet in your home, classroom, or school

- how to maintain motivation for a healthy tech diet

Send in your questions! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to engage directly with Dr. Shimi Kang - adolescent psychiatrist, best-selling parenting author, & award-winning motivational therapy researcher.

Please note:

  1. Submit your questions/comments to Dolphin Kids Facebook or Dolphin Kids Instagram prior to the event.

  2. The webinar link & further access instructions will be sent to you via email & posted here closer to the event date.

Parents and educators, you now have a new and important role: teaching, guiding, & overseeing the establishment of a healthy technological "diet" for children & teens. Start now!

100% of proceeds from this event will be donated to Common Sense Media for further research into the impact of technology use on children and youth.

Thank you for supporting our mission to guide children towards better health, connection, resiliency, and innovation! The Dolphin Kids Team.
