Updated: May 29

Release date: March 4, 2024

More and more attention is being paid to the potential dangers kids face when they spend too much time in front of screens. Setting aside the veracity of those claims, it does seem that there are more people suggesting problems than there are suggesting solutions. My guest for this episode, Michael Jacobus, is an exception. Michael has applied his considerable experience as a child development specialist and seasoned youth camp leader to the creation of Reset Summer Camp, a summer residential program in which participants, “detox from their screen addiction and learn how to self-regulate, as they participate in individual and group therapy.” Even if the kids in your life are unable to attend Reset Summer Camp, you will learn a lot from Michael’s insights on helping young people develop healthier habits and, ultimately, lead healthier lives. More information about Michael and Reset Summer Camp is below.
