The good, bad and scary of social media.

For adults, social media is information-driven. For teens, it’s a social currency. We’ll talk about how we approach these tools differently and what you need to know about helping your Gen Z child navigate social media responsibly.

We’ll also talk about anxiety, doomscrolling and how social media affects mental health in teens.

Finally, Robrenna will share some practical ideas and tips for helping you think through smartphone usage for your kids.
