Never switched off: Parenting children and adolescents in the digital age
New lunchtime conference!
Parents can feel overwhelmed when faced with the many challenges posed by the digital age to their children. How to manage screen time? How to limit distraction from texting and lack of focus during homework? What to do if your child is being bullied online? What is the impact of being permanently online on social skills and peer relationships?
These are just some of the questions that Stacie Allard, educational consultant, and Iulia Nastase Popescu, clinical and educational psychologist, will be discussing in this lunchtime conference.
