Connecting Families

Connecting Families is designed to support and empower families in raising kids who think critically, participate responsibly, and behave ethically in their online lives.

Managing Screen Time

For parents raising kids a decade ago, managing screen time could be as simple as putting the television in the family room and clicking the power button when it was time to move on to another activity.

Plus, the sheer number of apps and devices -- and the fact that many are completely mobile -- can make managing kids’ screen time seem like a nearly impossible feat.
