PLUGGED-IN PARENTS: Keeping Kids Safe, Happy, and Healthy in the Digital Age.
Children are exposed to more media and technology, and at earlier ages, than ever before. With a dizzying array of smartphones, tablets, e-readers, and on-demand services, today's kids are the most media- and tech-saturated generation ever. It’s not hard to find reasons to worry about how smartphones, social media, and screen time are impacting them. How can we understand how this environment is really affecting our children? And more importantly, what can we do about it? Join us to learn more about the impact of media and tech on children's health and development, and how to guide your children in making safe and respectful digital choices.
Join us to learn more about:
• How children are using media and tech to create, consume, communicate, and learn.
• The impact of media and tech on kids’ health and development.
• How to guide your kids in making safe and respectful digital choices.
• How to better understand, engage and communicate with your kids about their use of social media and screentime.
