Dr. Jill Walsh
Tweens, Teens, and Screens: Helping our children create healthy tech boundaries
Tuesday, January 18
7–8 p.m.
Although there has always been debate about the opportunities and challenges with screen time, there was at least a list of best practices that we as parents could seek out as guidelines. Then the pandemic made technology critical for both our children’s academic and social experiences. What do best practices look like now?
Dr. Walsh will go through practical and valuable parameters that we can establish to help set our children up for success navigating their technology. Particular focus will be on positive tech use, thinking about quantity vs. quality of tech, and addressing challenges like digital socializing. While Dr. Walsh will provide a research-based approach, she is also a working mother of two technology-obsessed kids so she will also offer insights into which rules to follow closely and which to worry less about as we navigate this new period of digital engagement. This session is for Middle School parents/caregivers as the content will be geared toward that audience.

We look forward to seeing Middle School families
on Zoom on Tuesday, January 18!
