— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our resources are extensive and intended to inform many different communities on the possible risks and impacts of technology. Our suggestions are meant to be comprehensive in an effort to empower communities to create and adopt informed, healthy, and appropriate societal norms to ensure kids are using technology safely. We don’t expect that you’ll follow every suggestion. But we do expect that you’ll RESPECT parents who do and also parents who don’t. Our goal is not to tell parents how to parent but simply to unite, inform and empower communities to make their own choices around healthy tech use.
