Free seminar — Protecting children from hidden online marketing
May 7, 2019 @ 7:15 pm - 8:45 pm
Most parents will understand the stress of protecting kids from the overt and covert advertising that comes with today’s screen time.
In this free seminar, Dr. Susan Linn, founder of the Campaign for Commercial-Free Childhood and author of Consuming Kids, will talk about how apps, games and digital devices benefit marketers at the expense of children.
In addition, Susan will discuss:
- The ways that children are developmentally vulnerable to advertising
- The sophisticated data collection and marketing techniques corporations routinely use to target kids on digital devices
- Why children need us to create better policies to protect them from corporate marketing
- Practical steps families can take to limit the harmful effects of commercialism on their children
