For over 15 years Jean Rogers has been supporting parents, teachers and healthcare professionals to raise healthy children in a media-saturated world. Her book, Kids Under Fire, helps parents learn how to empower young children to make healthy media choices for life and fosters family communication and intimacy. Her Kids Media Diet workshops have moved schools and parents to create media policies and better understand how technology is shaping child development and family life. Jean left a thriving career as an advertising and marketing writer to combat just the environment she was promoting – commercialized childhood and materialism. She has consulted with schools to form Technology and Media Committees and has worked as a Family Engagement Specialist. She has created and taught music, art, and intergenerational faith programs in various school and community settings. Jean has an M.S. Ed and a Graduate Certificate in Parenting Education from Wheelock College and a BA in English from Rhode Island College. She continues researching children’s cognitive, social and emotional development in the digital childhood. Jean and her husband, Jim, have five children, four boys and one girl, between the ages of 17 and 25. They live in Amherst, New Hampshire.
