The Art of Living Well Podcast®

Oct 19, 2022

We are excited to introduce today's guest, Tracy Foster.

Tracy is the Co-Founder and Executive Director at Screen Sanity, an international nonprofit that equips families to maximize the benefits of technology, while minimizing the side effects — so kids can grow up happy and healthy in a digital world. Tracy has co-authored two books to guide parents in digital wellness, and she contributes to news outlets such as the Wall Street Journal. Before Screen Sanity, Tracy invested 15 years developing organizational growth strategies as a management consultant with Mercer Management Consulting, then as an Associate Director at FSG. 

Many families feel overwhelmed by the challenge of knowing how to raise kids to have healthy screen habits. Screen Sanity acts like a driver's ed for the digital world. They teach parents and communities how to develop intentional tech habits and how to pass them on to their kids, so that we can all maximize the benefits of tech, but minimize its harmful side effects. 

In this episode you will learn:
  • How Screen Sanity is providing a community for parents to gain confidence and competency to have conversations with their kids about technology.
  • Their 5 Principles of Digital Health and specific resources for families, including their Social Media Playbook and lots of common sense tips and tools.
  • The negative impact that social media has on our kids' mental health, including porn and cutting (and strategies to monitor their usage and elicit a healthy dialogue).
  • How parents can be the ultimate models for their kids.
