Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well. 

Through poignant and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, brain scientists, and teens themselves, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts childrens’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower children to best navigate the digital world and find balance.
