So you don't see eye to eye on tech?

Worry less, connect more with your kids.
Have you ever disagreed (ahem, or even strongly disagreed) with your partner on how to handle technology with your kids?
If so, you’re not alone. There’s a lot to disagree on. Go screen-free? Hand over a cell phone? Allow video games or social media? Limit screen time? Use filters? Monitor your teen's device use? To top it off, technology and parenting experts don’t always agree on these issues, either. So what are parents to do?
In this Action Network Live! event, Andrea and Tyler Davis, parents of five children ages 7 to 16 and founders of Better Screen Time, will offer parent-tested tips to help parents and caregivers when they don't see eye to eye with a partner, co-parent, or other caregivers on tech. Learn about setting limits that support kids and become better able to find solutions even when disagreeing.
Plus, send us your questions! We all have a lot of questions, and we want to base this event on yours. Please submit your questions when registering or email them to email@example.com and bring your partner, friend, colleague, or teen to join in our conversation.
