DEAR PARENT (2 mins)
This 2 minute film is about the relationship between character, technology, and humanity. Dear Student and Dear Parent both premiered as part of our 6th annual Global Character Day, when we invited the world (over 200,000 events) to participate in a challenge: unplug for one full day, with your kids, and fill the day with things you (and they) love doing...without screens.
