“Emily visited our school and spoke with our faculty and then our families.  After hearing her speak both times, two words emerged to describe her presentation: relevant and engaging.  Her message was right on target and delivered in a convincing way that helped teachers and parents understand the impact of technology on the lives of kids.  Best of all, attendees left her presentation with specific next steps to consider when looking to rethink how teens use technology at home.  Thanks, Emily - your words helped me grow as an educator and parent.”

“The parents and guardians really enjoyed hearing Emily speak about a subject that seems to be something that all parents struggle with these days: how much screentime is too much? She handled this sensitive subject with humor, empathy, and a boatload of data...Her presentation is engaging and has sparked a great dialogue amongst parents about screentime rules.”

“Emily’s workshop is a must for any parent raising a child today. I not only learned more about the challenges our children face, but came away with a sense of hope and the confidence that I can do the right thing for my kids when it comes to screentime.”
