Parenting, Screens, & Social Media

Parenting, Screens, & Social Media

This Thursday night, February 29, at 7:00 p.m. at St. Paul Christian Academy, Woodmont is co-sponsoring a special event geared for parents called “Parenting in the Digital Age.” Jason and Lisa Frost, co-founders of Wired Human, will give a special presentation on this topic and that will be followed by a discussion panel that I will be participating in with my friend and St. Paul Head of School Will Norton.

The digital age has brought a whole new set of challenges to those of us who are parents of children and youth. We all struggle with limiting our kids’ screen time and knowing when to draw the line. How much is too much? What social media platforms should they be allowed to join and at what age?

The research is now very clear that social media is doing incredible damage to our kids as it relates to addiction, anxiety, depression, social exclusion, misinformation, and a host of other topics. This special event is a resource for all parents who struggle in this area or who simply want to learn more about the alarming research that is now available. It will begin at 7:00 p.m. and will take place in St. Paul’s Dining Hall Theatre.

If this is a topic that you want to learn more about, come and join me on Thursday night. It should be well worth your time. You can click here to RSVP.
