MEET THE FAMILY
What's it like when your mom is the co-author of Screen Kids, so you don't get a phone, video games, or social media?
Ethan, Noelle and Lucy are here to tell you in their own words.
Author Arlene Pellicane and her husband James also share the WHY and HOW of parenting with love and the absence of (gasp) smartphones.
"My friends don't normally ask me about video games. They ask me how I live without a phone."
- Ethan Pellicane (high school senior)
BECAUSE CHILDHOOD MATTERS.
Are kids today more attached to their screens or their parents?
In the book Screen Kids (co-authored with Dr. Gary Chapman of the 5 Love Languages), Arlene Pellicane explains what screen time is doing to the brain, the negative emotional effects of social media and the addictive nature of most video games.
What was happening in her own home?
WHEN PARENTS WATCH this film, you will be educated about what is possible and why your kids don't have to follow the crowd to digital addiction.
WHEN KIDS WATCH, they'll see there's much more to life than YouTube, video games, and TikTok.
