Public Speaking

Today everyone has questions about the healthy use of electronic devices. Parents wonder how much screen time is too much or at what age they should give their child a cell phone, and Mom and Dad often disagree about the rules. Parent-teacher organizations want to know what the experts recommend about laptops in schools or cell phone policies.  With the World Health Organization’s announcement that Gaming Disorder will now be officially recognized, counselors and other medical professionals need tools for assessing and treating their clients.

My presentations are aimed at helping families, communities and professionals understand and manage the challenges that arise from personal technology use.

Presentation Topics

  • Benefits and risks of screen activities
  • Practical tips for parents to begin using at home
  • At what age to allow smartphones and access to social media
  • Expert guidelines for how much time, which apps or games
  • Solutions for battles over screen time
  • Answers to privacy and safety concerns
  • Warning signs for video game addiction
