praise for screenagers: next chapter

We have two 13 year olds and a 16 year old that watched yesterday. Our conversation at dinner was amazing. We sat at the table way past empty plates talking about the impacts they are feeling. What they related to and how it made them feel to watch. We had tears, laughter, defensiveness, vulnerability and validation. It was such a great night for our family. As a mental health nurse and an adolescent coach I want to deeply thank you for giving this important topic consideration and exploration. You have created a tool and resource.

Sierra M., Mental Health Nurse and An Adolescent Coach

“It was AS EYE OPENING AS the first Screenagers.”

Erik Paulson, Principal, NJ

“Amazing documentary… very relevant for parents, teachers and students. Many parents left asking when we were going to show it again because they wanted to bring their friends.”

John H., Vice Principal, Elk Grove, CA

“I found it to be VERY POWERFUL and VALIDATING for both teens and parents.”

Louise Kirkhope, Social Worker

“I can’t imagine what school counsellor would not be eager to share this with their families.”

Nell Branco, School Counselor

Really captures the struggles we see parents and students having across the board. I appreciated the “hope” parents/kids felt at the end.”

Renee Burnett, Teacher, NY
