Screen Sanity Summit
Screen Sanity Summit
START is excited to announce the (first ever!) Screen Sanity Summit, a unique nationwide event that will bring parents together to discuss one of today’s most pressing topics—digital health.
The one-day event features exclusive content from START’s Screen Sanity Group Study, including topics that cover every age and stage of digital parenthood. Expect to hear from experts in the digital field, have rich conversations with parents like you, reflect on the role technology plays in your life and leave with realistic tools for improving your family’s digital health. While content is designed for adults, the Screen Sanity Summit will provide practical ways to talk to your kids about everything from smartphones to social media.
START is proud to partner with a variety of community-based organizations, and we’re especially grateful to our host venue, Church of the Resurrection, for bringing the inaugural Screen Sanity Summit to life.
If you are unable to attend in person in Kansas City, we invite you to join us virtually via Zoom. Even better—gather a group and host a virtual watch party!
Join from anywhere! Register to participate online. See details below.

Internet filters and digital safety
Unplugging and creating device-free zones
Over the past three years, thousands of people have experienced our work—and 99% of our participants say they would recommend it. While we celebrate this feedback, we are also proud that initial academic research of our program by Children’s Mercy Hospital reports that our program is effective.
“Coming together with others who were fighting the same screentime battle was incredibly enlightening. The conversations were life-changing and wouldn’t have happened without the help of the Screen Sanity videos and discussion prompts. I feel hopeful now—not helpless.”
