Surveys suggest that children in the United States have their own mobile phones on average at the age of 10.  Most parents are unaware, however, that digital screens not only affect the brain and eyes, but also shrink learning capacity, attention span, social skills, balanced mood, posture, and sleep.

In her first interview since writing her new book “Screen Children: How Digital Screens Are Impacting Our Kids and How To Help Them,” Geneva, Switzerland-based Meltem Küskü will talk to EHT’s Theodora Scarato about her experience educating parents on the dangers of radiofrequency radiation (RFR) and the physical, mental, psychological, and social impacts of digital technology.

Küskü’s book, which is available on Amazon, is based on scientific research but is written in conversational language that makes it easy to read and understand. Renowned addiction expert Dr. Gabor Maté calls “Screen Children” “a clearly-written, science-based warning on the impacts of digital technology and a helpful primer on how to avoid and mitigate its harms.”

Ms. Küskü adds that it makes a great baby shower gift for parents to gain awareness before they hand over the screens to babysit their children.

Küskü will take audience questions during this event.

DATE: Tuesday, March 9, 2021

TIME: 9:00 a.m. EST
