Toxic Screen Time

with guest Melanie Hempe

Hosted by Dr. Meg Meeker | May 16th, 2022 | 49:09 min

From “video game comas” to “smartphone obsessions”, screens are stealing childhoods. Melanie Hempe, founder of the non-profit ScreenStrong, shares countercultural choices that can help move your child’s entertainment and social life from the online world back to the real, in-person world.

Today's Guest(s)

Melanie Hempe, BSN, received her bachelors of Nursing from Emory University. She helps families avoid problematic screen use — video games, social media, pornography — in their kids’ lives. Through ScreenStrong, she provides easy education on brain development, the effects of screen use on kids, and solutions for parents who desire to free their kids from screen addictions. She helps parents reclaim their kids by delaying the use of toxic screens and reconnecting families.
