Critical issue for all parents & kids to consider
21 January 2018 | by kjwalynnSee all my reviews

I've seen this film a couple of times. I continues to be relevant as we look at the challenge of smart phones and use of screens/gaming in our kids' lives. The film is a great look at the issue and suitable for viewing with your kids to spark conversations about how they are using their phones and considering the long term impact socially, emotionally and academically. Highly recommend!
