Digitally Distracted: Parenting in the Age of Technology Seminar

  • Joyce Kilmer School 80 Ridge Road Mahwah, NJ, 07430 United States (map)

Kids spend more than eight hours per day, seven days a week on electronic devices. The result is a malleable brain that is rewired to assimilate to a cyber-world – not the real world. The byproduct is chronic anxiety, attention deficit, depression, poor social skills, academic failure, and family relationship problems. This lecture is an eye-opener and will include tips to help live in the real world and less in the cyber world.

This program will provide training and education in:

  • Technology use and mental health
  • How much screen time is too much?
  • Strategies to help your child reduce anxiety
  • How much sleep is acceptable for your child?
  • Creating leaders, not followers
  • Your role as a parent
