Children and teens urgently need our help navigating today’s digital landscape of video games, social media, and smartphones—which many kids just can’t put down. Join Dr. Richard Freed as he explains why technology poses the risk of addiction, how important family is for kids in resisting these pressures, and how to raise happy, healthy children in the digital age.

Dr. Freed is the author of the book Wired Child: Reclaiming Childhood in a Digital Age, and his insights have been featured in The New York Times, Medium, The Atlantic, on NPR, and other media platforms. He speaks internationally to parents, teachers, and health care providers on how to promote children’s well-being in this age of machines.
