“Digital Dementia”
« on: April 23, 2019, 01:59:48 PM »

By B.N. Frank

Silicon Valley parents (aka tech inventors) have been limiting their own kids’ use of screens for many years while tech companies have been successfully and lucratively marketing screens to kids, their parents, and public schools.  It’s insidious but perfectly legal even though research has proven over and over again that kids’ use and exposure to screens is harmful.

Some kids are even experiencing Alzheimer’s-like symptoms.  This is referred as “Digital Dementia.”  Author and speaker Dr. Krista Burns is hosting a free online workshop about this condition which includes interviews with 60+ experts as well as solutions.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind
