The Back to School Toolkit


In partnership with Marcus Family Law Center and the San Diego French-American School, Hannah's House presents a day of expert discussion, Q&A and a special screening of this important film.


Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might impact their development.

As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.

This child-screen relationship, while difficult for all parents, is particularly challenging for two-home children where each parent may have his or her own rules for screens. We will address the challenges and the solutions in this unique opportunity where professionals and parents can view this exceptional documentary and gain knowledge from experts on these complex matters.
