Introducing Screenagers Bites on YouTube!

We recently launched the Screenagers YouTube Channel where we will be uploading a range of new content and resources each week, such as movie clips, podcasts, and other original content. I wanted this week to introduce you to the first regular feature on the channel —  Screenagers Bites!

In making our trilogy of movies, we recorded over 3000 hours of interviews with our subject matter experts. So many great insights and so little movie to fit them all into. Through the Screenagers Bites on YouTube, we now have a place where we can bring these valuable resources to you, our community.

For this weeks TTT, I wanted to showcase an initial selection of these bites to you, and let you know that you can expect many more of these on the channel in the coming weeks. If this would be of benefit to you, I'd ask you to visit our YouTube channel and subscribe to get them directly into your feed there.

The Power of Self-Compassion: A Strategy for Smoother Parenting

Some months ago, I got back into therapy, and I remember the first day back, the therapist asked me, “Do you do a self-compassion practice?” I remember the moment because I had one of those little head-scratching kind of moments. My therapist's question about a self-compassion practice made me want to understand what I might be missing and, most importantly, how self-compassion could help me as a parent and all parents.

How to Address The Hardest Screen Time Parenting Dilemmas

I just released a new Screenagers’ Podcast episode featuring a lively and productive interview with Charlie Appelstein, a social worker and the author of “No Such Thing As A Bad Kid,” who has worked with youth and parents for over four decades.
