FREE! The Art of Discipline in the Age of Screens

Thursday, August 30 from 8 – 9 pm ET
For all parents

Join us for an eye-opening conversation with two of the most buzzed-about parenting authors of 2018, together for a one-hour discussion of the nitty-gritty of parenting kids in their online and real lives. This one-time webinar is offered free of charge; registration includes handouts from the authors.

Katherine Reynolds Lewis, an award-winning independent journalist, mom, and author of The Good News About Bad Behavior: Why Kids Are Less Disciplined Than Ever–And What to Do About It.

Anya Kamenetz, an NPR correspondent, a mom, and author of The Art of Screen Time: How Your Family Can Balance Digital Media and Real Life.

“Enjoy screens. Not too much. Mostly with others.” This brief but powerful dictum forms the backbone of Kamenetz’s philosophy in The Art of Screen Time. Kamenetz delivers a deeply researched, honest, and refreshing view on managing the role of technology in kids’ lives. She dives into helping parents calm their fears, get comfortable with their kids’ technology, and create a happy, healthy family life—with screens.

Lewis’s book, which grew from a viral article in Mother Jones, documents a new model of discipline for a generation of children who are out of control. The Good News About Bad Behavior highlights game-changing strategies based on five years of reporting on parents, teachers, psychologists, rehabilitation experts, and brain scientists.
