Yalda T. Uhls PhD is an award-winning child psychologist and expert in how media affects children. Her book, Media Moms and Digital Dads distills academic research focused on the impact of technology on children and breaks down the issues to make them actionable for parents.

Dr. Uhls’ work with UCLA (featured in media outlets such as the NY Times and NPR) focuses on how older and newer media impacts the social behavior of preadolescents.
