“The Triumphs and Pitfalls of Parenting and Technology”
February 5, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
“What parent doesn’t struggle with technology and child rearing?” asks Chance Cardamone-Knewstub, Dean of Students at Vermont Commons School. “I can’t count the numbers of parents who come to my office to talk about how to finesse the difficult relationships they and their children have with technology. As a school, we have similar issues. So, I thought, let’s bring in some experts and have a conversation.”
The goals for this discussion are:
- How to address stress and conflict in families related to children’s use of digital technology.
- How to identify and maintain boundaries around digital technology that will work for your family
- Envisioning what a healthy and relatively stress free family relationship to digital technology might look like
During the evening we will have break out sessions to share, with our panelists and fellow parents, the triumphs and pitfalls we experience in the face of an increasingly technological world.
Speakers are Dr. Elaine Young, Susan Hennessey, and Ari Shapir-Miller.
