First Phone: Tips to Ensure Kids Stay Safe, Smart and Kind On-Line


Screen time is a constant battle in children's lives. This session offers tips to ensure kids stay safe, smart and kind online around issues of boundaries, digital etiquette, safety, self-care, social media, cyberbullying and scams/phishing. Pearlman will explain when and how to monitor children's phones, how to limit time on social media, and why it's important to turn off notifications and keep phones out of the bedroom. Her new children's book on these topics is available at the festival.
