Do your kids own their digital devices OR do their devices OWN them?

Cell phones. Social media. Video games. Notifications. Tablets. Wearables. There's just no escaping it: technology is woven into our lives. And with it comes a growing list of challenges for kids and parents: addiction, negative body image and self-esteem, cyberbullying, inappropriate internet content, online predators... the list goes on, and it changes without warning. Parents, teachers, and professionals alike are overwhelmed. But our team of summit experts is here to offer clarity.

Do your kids or teens:

  • Struggle to unplug from their devices?
  • Use screens to dodge boredom or social awkwardness?
  • Feel anxious or withdrawn after too much screen time?
  • Get grumpy when they're off screens, itching for more?
  • Feel bummed by social comparison or FOMO?
  • Struggle with body image exacerbated by social media?
  • Lose sleep because of constant notifications?
  • Have a hard time switching from gaming to anything?

We'll Tackle These Themes & More!


Cultivating Mindful Tech Use

First, it was the iPhone. Then iPads. Then TikTok. And everything else in-between.

Kids nowadays don’t just need technology—they can’t seem to live without it.

They don’t just want tech to socialize. They need it for school. To check in with us. To have fun.

During the (Re)Connected Kids Summit, we'll be exploring research-based strategies to cultivate mindful, balanced tech use.

We know technology isn't going anywhere, let's figure out what it's going to take to foster a better relationship with it.

Internet Safety & Mental Health

Cyber-bullying. Stranger Danger. Identity theft. The list goes on.

We’ll be diving deep into internet safety, what's really going on, and how to use technology and other strategies to keep our kids safe.

You'll learn from experts from around the world in threat intelligence and cybersafety during this event!

Screentime and Teen Body Image

Future-Proofing & Raising Resilience

Does social media make kids anxious, or do anxious kids use more social media? Does scrolling through Instagram, TikTok, and other apps really affect body image? Is it possible to use technology that is designed to be addictive in a more mindful way? World-renowned researchers uncover the answers and give us best practices to help our kids thrive in the digital age.
