Kids and Tech: Parenting Tips for the Digital Age

Wednesday, September 27th 6-8pm
Location: Family Place 9822 SW Gorsuch Rd (lower level)
Designed for parents with children 1-11 years old
Cost $10-20 (sliding scale); No Registration Required

Children can access information like never before. They can entertain themselves like never before. They can connect with each other like never before. But there are some potential problems if we don't keep our eye on what children truly need. Join us for this two hour class and discussion about navigating both the potential benefit and challenges of screen time for our kids.  Class taught by Christine Wood.

Topics covered will include:

  • What do children really need to feel good and reach their potential and how does technology affect this?
  • How do we know what our kids are ready for?
  • What kinds of rules and rituals are helpful?
  • Resources and tools so we can buffer possible harm
