Kids and Screen Time: Tips for how to minimize conflict in your home (District 196 Series 3 of 3)
May 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
We will be doing a series of three classes through District 196 Community Education. All registration is through their site.
Many parents worry about their child’s use of technology and amount of time kids spend glued to screens. New studies link use of screens with developmental and neurological problems in children. Parents often express concerns about how to talk to kids about these risks and about how to set limits without creating unnecessary arguments or conflict. In this session, we will discuss how to balance the positive and negative aspects of technology use. We will explore the risks and signs of compulsive behaviors. We will introduce effective ways of setting boundaries, limits and consequences. This interactive session will incorporate role-playing scenarios to allow participants to practice these concepts.
