We focus on the issues and opportunities facing children and teens in relation to media and technology. Mediatrics applies cutting edge scientific expertise in child health and human development to inform, guide and support our three main products: an audio podcast, a question-and-answer blog, and consultancy services. We have two target audiences: For parents, we provide practical knowledge on how to raise healthy, happy, well-adjusted children in today’s technology-saturated world (freely available via our podcast and blog). For the tech industry, we provide tailored advice on how best to build, design, and operate media products and services that positively affect children and families (via our paid consultancy services).
