4. Raising Your Kids in a Digital Age

WHAT: Today, parents face countless questions about how to utilize all of the benefits of raising our kids in a digitally connected world while also protecting them. It’s great that they have access to so much information. But do they need access to ALL of the information they can find on the internet if we really think about what lurks beneath? Its a whole new space for kids to get bullied or for them to be preyed upon by those who would do them harm. What are the long term effects of screen time at an early age? What are the statistics on child addiction with technology? There are so many questions and decisions because again, there is sooooo much value in having the world at our fingertips. This seminar aims to provide parents with valuable information to help make decisions for your family, because we all have different situations and kids with different needs.

Childcare for children ages 2-10 years of age is available. Please register here.
