Is your bright child struggling with excessive screen use?

This summer, move beyond excessive screen use, that includes video games, social media, video streaming and more. When kids over-use screens, it affects their ability to focus, socialize, enjoy wellbeing, and bust through boredem. Learn how to set boundaries and have more family fun with the Summer Screen Sanity Series, happening in July, in the Bright & Quirky IdeaLab.

Kids struggling with screen overuse

The Summer Screen Sanity Series is right for you if your bright child:

  • Resists getting off video games or screens without a battle, meltdown or requests for one more minute

  • Has a shorter attention span and more irritability, the more they use screens

  • Feels anxious or low self worth due to social media

  • Lacks in-real-life friendships

  • Tries to hack parental control settings on screens

  • Lacks enough outdoor time, creative self-driven projects or unstructured play time

How to Curb Excessive Screen Use & Have More Family Fun, with Dr. Michael Rich, MD

It's summertime and that means less structure to the day, and potentially more screens and screen battles. That's why we've invited Harvard professor and Director of the Digital Wellness Lab, Dr. Michael Rich, MD, to share tips and strategies from his new book, The Mediatrician's Guide. At Boston Children's Hospital, Dr. Rich regularly works with bright and quirky kids who are struggling with Problematic Interactive Media Use (PIMU). Bring your favorite way to take notes, and your questions! We're always delighted when the charming and informative Dr. Rich visits the IdeaLab!

Stop Screen Over-Use and Empower Bright Kids' Social, Emotional and Physical Development, with Guidance from Top Screen Experts

Bright and quirky kids are most at risk when it comes to screen overuse and addiction. Why? Because lags in executive function, including time managment and self-control to stop screens, can get in the way of digital wellbeing. Also, online life can become a comfort zone that lessens motivation to try new things and meet new people.

That's why we've gathered the top experts to share their solutions to managing excessive use of video games, social media, video streaming and more, so your family can enjoy more peace, connection, physical health and creative development.

“I am so grateful, it was meant to be that I found you guys that day!”

IdeaLab member Sarah shares, “Things have changed a lot…I was really thinking about where we were and how much we’ve learned as a family from the beginning of discovering [IdeaLab] until now, it’s pretty profound….I feel empowered.”

“Trust what Bright & Quirky is saying when they tell you what they can accomplish.”

IdeaLab member Dan shares, “Can it get better? Absolutely, unequivocally. Yes, and I’m witness to some of the parents who were just pulling their hair out and in tears, some of whom I've seen in community, in the Facebook group and in conversations much like this. Night and day difference.”

"[IdeaLab] changed everything!"

IdeaLab member Emon shares, "Before we started Bright & Quirky, I had no idea where my now 17-year-old was going to land. But now he is a senior and he is doing dual enrollment. He’s about to start Junior College… he’s ready. And we didn’t see that before.”

“I see my child very happy, his eyes are bright again.”

IdeaLab member Veronica shares, “We were able to lower his anxiety meds. I see that he is actually learning at school, not just surviving school. A treasure about Bright & Quirky is being able to have a community that you can relate to, it can be a very lonely path…we share a common language and understand each other and what we are going through.”
