In this webinar specifically for parents, grandparents, and caregivers, Nina Hersher and Criscillia Benford offer strategies to develop healthy digital habits, create conditions for connection within households, and help you use design-thinking inspired approaches to cope with challenging emotions and create reassuring structures.
