About Childhood 2.0
When we were growing up, our parents worried about stranger danger and whether we were home by the time the streetlights came on. But for parents raising the first-generation of kids with smartphones, everything is different. Childhood 2.0 takes a deep dive into what coming of age really looks like today — and just how much things have changed thanks to technology and social media.
Featuring actual parents and kids as well as industry-leading experts in child safety and development, this documentary is required viewing for anyone that wants to better understand the world their children inhabit as they navigate growing up in the digital age.
Learn how access to social media and ever-evolving technology creates new issues that past generations didn’t have to face, including cyberbullying, near-instant access to porn, online predators, a rise in child suicide, and more.
