“MARC’s new research finds that very early use of cell phones increases the risk of involvement in bullying and cyberbullying.  Our sister organization "Concord Promise’s" practical approach to delaying smartphone use by children makes a great deal of sense, and I support it entirely.”

I just literally cheered out loud for you when I saw your post about the "Concord Promise'. I have had several emotional moments in the past few weeks watching how disconnected from one another kids and parents are today. It breaks my heart to see. I realize it is a big part of all of our worlds, but we have to figure out a way to reign it in and reconnect as humans - as parents and families. I was one of those that was able to hold off until 8th grade. Even at that, I didn’t allow texting until high school, and I managed to raise an amazing, smart, socially and civically conscious young woman” Michelle T., Parent
