Parent Ed: Healthy Screen Use

With Expert and Author Dr. Tracy Bennet

Dr. Bennett is a screen safety expert who teaches families how to strengthen relationships AND achieve screen sanity. She is founder and CEO of GetKidsInternetSafe (GKIS) and author of Screen Time in the Mean Time: A Parenting Guide to Get Kids and Teens Internet Safe

In her work as a clinical psychologist over 25 years, she sees the impacts of digital injury and how to treat and prevent it. After being distracted by the loss of her parents, she needed answers for her own kids; shame-free, actionable strategies that work. They weren’t out there. Instead she found speakers who focused on scare-tactics and extreme no-screen recommendations. Being a mom herself, she knew these approaches led to eye-rolls, conflicts, and a damaged parent-child relationship. Her approach for GKIS is, instead, based on information that is science-based with parenting strategies that are outcome-based and tested with real families. Her CSUCI research and teaching complement her feet-on-the-ground warm and practical real-life skill set. She consults with experts in technology and education and served on Facebook’s Youth Advisory Team and was Global Ambassador of TeenSafe. Her television and radio appearances, keynotes, blog articles, and online parenting programs make a powerful impact on families.
