Title: Empowering Parents in the Digital Age

Population-based studies continue to show associations between excessive television viewing in early childhood and cognitive and social/emotional delays. A recent analysis found that negative experiences on social media carry more weight than positive interactions when it comes to the likelihood of young adults reporting depressive symptoms. Unfortunately, the rise in digital technology and social media coincides with the increase of teen suicide rates in the United States. Join us for informative presentations and a discussion on strategies to improve parent-child communication surrounding digital technology use.
