You should attend if…

you feel you don’t know where to start in terms of learning how to effectively monitor your child’s use of technology. You have struggled in the past to set boundaries around technology use with your kids (video games, phones, computers, tablets, etc.). You are planning to allow your child to have their own cell phone soon, and you want to start out on the right foot regarding safety and setting limits. Your child or teen loses control when you suggest screen time limits.

Workshop Description

The world of technology is constantly growing and changing. The emergence of the virtual world over the last decade has added much more complexity to the challenges parents face trying to keep our children safe and healthy. That’s why we’ve created a group course to guide parents through the myriad potential issues associated with kids and technology. After completing this group course, you will better understand how to set appropriate technology-related boundaries with children of various ages, the most current research related to child and adolescent use of technology, and what is available in terms of monitoring cell phone and computer usage to better ensure internet safety.

Objectives

  • Learn to set boundaries with kids surrounding use of technology
  • Learn about current events and research as they relate to technology use for children and teens
  • Learn ways to better ensure online safety

Format

A virtual group of no more than 8 individuals. The bulk of the time will be used for education and sharing information, plus a Q&A.
