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:
|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.
