March 31, 4pm – 6pm, $15.00 per family. Parents attend with your teenagers. Growing Up in the Digital Age, a documentary about the biggest parenting issue of our time.
While Moms and Dads are welcome to attend by themselves or together, we encourage you to attend WITH your children 7th-8th grade through High School. There is a brief segment addressing sexting and suicide. If you haven’t addressed or discussed these issues with your children already, you may wish to attend without them and bring home other valuable and practical information (more age appropriate) to discuss with them.
Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might impact their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.
