  • Dr. Francie Broghammer: Loneliness in America; ‘we’re all alone together’; absence of meaningful relationships plagues half of all Americans; after food & shelter, top human need is connectedness; the social media phenomenon, too much digital connection for some; parents need to monitor social media use and content.
  • Mary FioRito: Ideological extremism invading otherwise innocent children’s books, television programs, applying social agenda to characters and scripts; parental vigilance is necessary more than ever.
