We're overloaded with virtual notifications, autoplay, chat bots, and other tactics designed to keep us all glued to our devices. Teaching our youth to be good digital citizens starts with giving them access to high-quality information about the risks and rewards of technology, social media and modeling healthy media habits for our kids.
Common Sense Media in partnership with the Child Mind Institute offers advice and solutions for potential pitfalls such as addiction, anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation. Learn more about keeping media and tech use healthy and positive, identifying mental health red flags, and when it might be time to step in.
