  • State of the solution -- Flip phones, phone time-outs, network blockers, and various apps that help encourage more balanced use. However, current solution set shows limited sustainability. What will ultimately work, if anything? 

  • Families - Number one concern among parents of teenagers is "technology overuse." More so than bullying, drugs, alcohol and general safety. What is the solution for families?
