"I’ve known and admired Melanie Hempe for over a decade as she built what is now a treasure trove of information, tools, and techniques for kids, parents, educators, and clinicians to help families navigate technology. ScreenStrong's Kids’ Brains and Screens Course is packed full of research-based and experiential evidence to support the numerous strategies of screen management to attain and maintain health and well-being. I highly recommend the Kids’ Brains and Screens Course as a gold standard for achieving the family that everyone dreams of!"

"ScreenStrong is an invaluable resource and guide for families trying to navigate their way through our current screen-focused environment. The Kids' Brains & Screens Course delivers the scientific evidence of brain development and the effects screen usage has on the developing brain. In a culture where smartphones, video games and social media have become the accepted norm, ScreenStrong allows for another path and supports parents who wish to avoid the harmful effects of these technologies. As a pediatrician, it has become clear that depression and anxiety are epidemic in our teen population and there is evidence linking depression with increased screen use. As our children and teens become increasingly at risk of being exploited by and addicted to technology, ScreenStrong reminds parents that they are not alone in having very legitimate concerns about the ubiquitous use of screens in our children's lives."

"I have known Melanie Hempe and Screen Strong since the beginning of her organization. She was initially the canary in the coal mine, bringing attention to the power and effects of social media, video games and screens on the minds of our children. I recommend highly and without reservation every course she presents. ScreenStrong gives tremendous understanding with scientific explanations, as well as practical meaningful solutions on how to help your children reclaim the part of their minds that the digital world has consumed."
