From smartphones and social media to cyberbullying and increasing childhood anxiety, technology is transforming how young people see themselves, learn, develop social skills and communicate with others, a news release stated. Regardless of technological skill, however, parents and caregivers are still the best people to guide children through adolescence.

Cohen-Sandler, author of “Anything But My Phone, Mom!,” will provide insights and strategies for caregivers to better understand what teens are going through. She will discuss how families can create strong bonds and a close and loving relationship with children, while keeping them safe on the road to adulthood in the digital era.
