ImpactParents.com expands and extends pre-registration for global Digital Sanity Summit beginning March 30 – April 3, 2020

  United States, Georgia, Atlanta - 03/25/2020 (PRESS RELEASE JET)


ImpactPARENTS.com announced today that it is expanding pre-registration to the world’s first virtual Digital Sanity Summit which includes free access to all of its programming. With parents and more than 300 million children in the U.S. suddenly all working and attending school from home, the challenges of how to parent in a connected world are more urgent than ever.  The free, virtual summit will feature in-depth interviews with global experts on issues of parent controls, cyber-safety, using technology to cultivate social relationships, life in the pandemic era, and more. The event is set for March 30 – April 3, 2020.

“Parents across the world are facing this challenge:  how do we work—and parent— with technology in this extraordinary moment. We sought out experts from all over the world to speak to the issues and solutions we need right now,” explains ImpactPARENT’s co-founder and world-renowned parenting coach Elaine Taylor-Klaus.  “While children and teens benefit from developing healthy technology habits, the Coronavirus Pandemic brings unexpected challenges.  In this moment, technology is a lifeline, an education tool, and a vital social connection.   How do you encourage healthy technology habits while managing weeks of enforced family time and social isolation from friends?   How do you keep the whole family entertained without turning into techno-zombies in the weeks to come? The Digital Sanity Summit will provide the support and resources that parents and professionals need – exactly when they need it most.”

According to UNESCO, the Coronavirus Pandemic has impacted an astounding 1,254,315,203 children, youth and adult learners in 124 countries. What’s more, the global scale implementation of eLearning and the enforcement of social distancing is set to drive media consumption habits up across all platforms by 60%. Strategies to positively influence the intellectual, cultural and social impact must be developed now.

The Summit will feature insightful interviews with leading experts from around the globe, including:
