How do we make sure that the values we want our children to learn stand out from the digital noise and commercialism of today’s times?  Dr. Kathy Masarie and co-author Kathy Keller Jones, M.A. offer mindful life choices that professionals can use to support families in an overwhelmingly electronic world. Their seven parenting “touchstones” empower parents to help children meet their potential and avoid the pitfalls digital device overuse. Their webinar focuses on gradual introduction of devices as children grow into teens, digital-free times and zones, and how to make these practices sustainable in family life.
