Testimonials

Every. Single. Parent... needs to watch this on YouTube RIGHT NOW. If you have a child, watch it, if you are a grandparent, watch it. ESPECIALLY if they are in middle school and EVEN more so if they have a phone or about to get one. Watch it NOW.

We watched it with our 15, soon to be 16-year-old twins. It was great, it allowed for honest conversation.

A MUST WATCH!!! I wanted to throw up and cry all at the same time what our children both little and big are watching.

To whoever recommended the documentary Children 2.0 earlier, THANK YOU!! I had never heard of this and I’m even a Licensed Mental Health Counselor!!!
