2023-2024 Parent Information Series

Screens and Teens - Helping Our Children Create Healthy Tech Boundaries - March 6, 2024

  • There has always been a debate about screen time in our children’s lives, but what are the best practices in 2024? Dr. Jill Walsh, a sociology professor at Boston University, will go through practical and valuable parameters that we can establish to help set our children up for success in navigating their technology.

    In this presentation, Dr. Walsh will communicate information about:

    • Popular platforms and the opportunities and challenges they create for our children.
    • Key themes presented to students so that parents and guardians are on the same page.
    • Conversation starters for engaging with teens around technology and practical tips that can be readily incorporated into family routines.

    The goal of this presentation is to provide practical and easily accessible guidelines and conversation starters that families can use at home.

    Dr. Walsh will be virtually presenting to parents and community members in Orchard Park on March 6, 2024.  The presentation will be held from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Visit https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_u8nOMJdlR-y74LT8s1wH-w to pre-register for this free presentation.
