“As the mother of three kids—two of them teenagers—I’ve noticed that whenever I get together with other parents, the conversation ends up turning to our kids’ screen time…”This was just one of the many testimonials about the documentary Screenagers I can relate to.
My kids certainly enjoyed an extended amount of usual screen time these past school holidays and it was not without concern. Even after dog walks, soccer games, scootering and fun times with friends I could see their urgency to return to the game they were playing on Wii U or just flop down and watch something, anything on TV. It was top of mind and that bothers me. Don’t get me wrong I have a lot of yearning for couch potato time too but I know this want/need/addiction will only be heightened when they become teenagers.

Screenagers was made by Delaney Ruston, a Stanford trained physician and social change documentary filmmaker who got the idea while struggling with her kids over screen time. Looking around she saw the trends of more kids getting smart phones, more tech in schools, and more homework online and wondered what all this screen time meant.
As a physician she wanted to understand the science of tech time on children’s development and as a mom she wanted to know what to do. Ultimately Delaney made Screenagers because she believes deeply in the importance of helping kids find balance in our tech-filled world. She is passionate about having the film be a vehicle to bring together parents, educators and kids so that change can happen not just in our homes but in our schools and communities too.
