Our children and youth are growing up in a profoundly different and digitally-connected landscape. Parents are seeing a drastic spike in the use of gadgets, with home-based learning exacerbating the explosion in screen time.
Internet gaming and social media engagement may be overtaking many of our children’s lives, impacting their sleep, relationships, academic journeys, and even mental health.
Join us for this Zoom webinar to understand why screens, games, and social media are so compelling for children.
Get equipped with evidence-based parenting approaches to better engage and connect with our children, so that they can harness digital technology in healthy, balanced ways in a tech-rich world.
