Additional InformationPhysician and filmmaker, Delaney Ruston decided to make Screenagers when she found herself constantly struggling with her two kids about screen time. Ruston felt guilty and confused, not sure what limits were best, especially around mobile phones, social media, gaming, and how to monitor online homework. Hearing repeatedly how other parents were equally overwhelmed, she realized this is one of the biggest, unexplored parenting issues of our time. "Parents are constantly asking us for guidance on how to manage their children's screen time, and for counsel on how much time is appropriate," said Carly Andrews, Head of School at Baker. "This documentary tackles issues like gaming and social media use head-on, and we expect it will generate some lively and engaging conversations." Director Ruston turned the camera on her own family and others-revealing stories that depict messy struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Examples of stories, include Hannah's, an 14-year old victim of social media bullying that stemmed from her trying to hide her use of social media from her mom. Issues are different for boys and girls, and the film also follows Andrew's story, a straight-A student whose love of video games spins out of control when he goes off to college and lands in an internet rehab center. Interwoven into the stories are cutting-edge science and insights from thought leaders such as Peggy Orenstein, Sherry Turkle, Simon Sinek, as well as leading brain scientists who present evidence on real changes happening in the brain. Screenagers goes far beyond exposing the risks of screen time, but reveals multiple approaches on how parents and educators can work with kids to help them achieve a healthy amount of screen time.
