Lost in the Instant – A NYC Talk for Parents

Today we are lost in the instant and drowning in distraction. How can families cultivate focus and connection in an era of overload? How can busy parents teach young digital natives the skills of attention and reflection that matter more than ever? Join Distracted author Maggie Jackson, a renowned expert on tech-life balance, for an eye-opening talk. She will discuss the roots of our split-screen culture, the latest science on the mind, and workable ways for all generations to thrive as humans today. Jackson will draw from the new updated edition of her acclaimed book Distracted: Reclaiming Our Focus in a World of Lost Attention (Sept. 2018) and her book-in-progress on uncertainty as opportunity in a darkening time. Put down your devices and join the Attention Movement!
