Screenagers is a documentary about the impact of the digital age on children and how to help families minimize harmful effects and find balance. We recently hosted a community viewing of the film on October 1.

If you missed the viewing, there’s still a way for you to be informed about this extremely important issue. Beginning October 18, we will host several weekly follow-up parent discussions, with a new topic each week. Here’s our tentative schedule:

Date Topic Speaker
 October 18  Sharing Stories: Responding to Screenagers Sarah Mears & Ward Page
October 25 Awareness: What are young people using? Dr. Brian Foreman, Campbell Univ.
November 1 Internet Safety & Cybersecurity Hugh Harris, NC Justice Dept.
November 8 Developmental Effects of Screen Use Dr. Kate Dryden, psychologist
November 15 Identity: Online vs. Authentic Dr. Brian Foreman, Campbell Univ.
November 22 Off for Thanksgiving Holiday N/A
November 29 Creating Family Boundaries & Contracts TBA

These discussions will follow our regular Family Night gatherings. Dinner is served beginning at 5:00pm, and there are activities for children (Birth – Grade 5) and youth (grades 6-12) from 6:15-7:15pm. You can view the weekly dinner menu here.

All of these discussions will take place in Room 204 (Hailey Class) of our educational building.
