Description:
Many parents today are often concerned about the potential threats posed onto their children through our hyper-connected world. The constant exposure to super stimuli and new social pressures adds an unfamiliar dimension to parenting that can be overwhelming. We would like to invite you to a seminar which will hopefully add insight and generate positive discussion surrounding this complex topic. Our aim is to help parents teach their children how to reap the benefits of living in a digital world while also reducing the negative effects it can have on focused attention and maintaining quality relationships. The content for this session has been sourced by Drs. Mike Brooks and Jon Laser who are psychologists with extensive experience working with kids, parents and teachers to develop strategies which prevent technology from becoming problematic. It is our hope that by raising awareness to this topic we can learn to support each other through this unfamiliar territory.
