In this unique discussion, three renowned experts discuss what different faith traditions bring to the screen time conversation and offer guiding principles that any family can use to maintain connection, hope, and strength in the digital age. Host Jean Rogers interviews filmmaker and media expert, Tiffany Shlain, author of the new book 24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week; writer and speaker Andy Crouch, author of The Tech-Wise Family; and Amin Aaser, founder and director of Noor Kids.

Bringing Jewish, Christian, and Muslim perspectives, presenters discuss the importance of community to families struggling with screen time, why families should designate tech-free "sacred" times and spaces in their homes, and how parents and caregivers can help children reflect on their values.
