Technology is everywhere these days — including many dinner tables. While there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to managing devices and screen time, families are struggling with how much, or even whether, technology should be allowed at family dinner. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Common Sense Media for their #DeviceFreeDinner campaign, encouraging families to set aside screens and focus on face-to-face interactions during mealtimes. Now our co-founder, Dr. Anne Fishel, will be participating in a video Expert Chat along with representatives from Common Sense Media and Understood to help shed light on strategies and tools families can use to help manage technology at the table.
The Expert Chat is hosted by Understood.org and will be held on December 6, 2016 at 3 p.m. ET. You can learn more and sign up for an event reminder here.
To learn more about our work with Common Sense Media and the #DeviceFreeDinner campaign, as well as to find practical tips and resources to help you and your family balance screen time with dinner time, check out our Technology at the Table page. You can also sign up for our daily #DinnerTonight series and use our dinnertime tracker tool to keep track of your progress towards your family dinner goals.
