Local parents, grandparents and youth are invited to watch “Screenagers: Growing up in the digital age. It’s a just over an hour documentary revealing how “tech time” is affecting our kids’ development but also recommends how to properly empower our kids to best navigate the digital world – to find a “balance.” A panel discussion follows the video to help folks make sense of what they just saw and to glean valuable insight from it, not the least of which does, indeed have an effect on their thinking and emotional development.
The film will be shown Wednesday, October 24th, 6pm, with the added information and discussion running possibly until possibly 8pm. It’s being held in the Taft High School Community Room.
Panel members will consist of school counselors, therapists, School Resource Officer, and youth peers.
The entire program is FREE!
