The Big Disconnect
Drawing on real-life stories from her clinical work with children and parents, and her consulting work with educators and experts across the country, Dr. Steiner-Adair will present on her bestselling book about how technology is affecting our children and our family relationships.  Her talk will offer insights and advice that can help parents of students from preschool through high school age achieve greater understanding, authority, and confidence as they face the tech revolution unfolding in their living rooms.


In a recent study 84 percent of respondents said that they could not go a single day without their cellphones.

50 percent of Americans sleep with their phone next to them, a number that includes more than 80 percent of 18-24 year olds.

20 percent of respondents check their phone every 10 minutes.

Teens spend roughly 9 hours a day on entertainment media and tweens spend 6 hours a day.  

56% of children age 8-12 have a cell phone and average age for first device is 12 years old.

43% of teens admit to texting and driving.

A majority of kids/teens spend about 75% of waking lives attached to some sort of screen.


Screen time isn't going anywhere. So let's talk about it.


Dr. Steiner-Adair is an internationally recognized clinical psychologist and award-winning author. She has a private practice, is a clinical instructor in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, and is an associate psychologist at McLean Hospital in Massachusetts.
