One of the most pervasive, troubling concerns about kids' screen time is that most child-targeted platforms and media are rife with overt and covert advertising. Join CCFC founder Dr. Susan Linn and Executive Director Josh Golin to learn how apps, games, and digital devices are built from the ground up to benefit marketers at the expense of children. Susan and Josh will discuss kids' developmental vulnerabilities to ads, the sophisticated techniques corporations routinely use to target kids on digital devices, the need for better policies to protect kids, and practical steps families can take to limit the harmful effects of commercialism on their children.

In addition, Susan and Josh will discuss:

  • The ways that children are developmentally vulnerable to advertising
  • The sophisticated data collection and marketing techniques corporations routinely use to target kids on digital devices
  • Why children need us to create better policies that protect them from corporate marketing
  • Practical steps families can take to limit the harmful effects of commercialism on their children.

This webinar WILL be recorded. Please register to receive a link to the recording when it is posted. Certificates of attendance are available for those who attend live.
