Description

iGen: Understanding the Smartphone Generation and Finding a Balance with Technology

Our children are the first generation to spend their entire childhood in the age of the smartphone, and this fact alone seems to have an important impact on who they are and how they relate to the world. More than previous generations, they are obsessed with safety, focused on tolerance, and have no patience for inequality. They are also "on the brink of the worst mental health crisis in decades.”

In this lively talk we will explore the idea that iGen may be growing up more slowly than previous generations. Also, learn what practical tools we, as iGen's primary caregivers and advocates, may utilize to best meet the developmental needs of our children and encourage their independence and autonomy.
