Event: Monthly Meeting: Going Screen Free

April 30, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

With school ending and summer around the corner, many families are struggling with how to manage screen time with their children. Others of you are sorting out when and how to introduce screens to your little ones as well as what amount of viewing time is acceptable.

This research-based presentation by Dr. Erika DC, ACN will dive into the ‘WHY’ of managing screen time. Does the amount matter? Does the age of the viewer matter? We’ll discuss some geeky and FUN neurology around this topic.

Join us in discovering helpful ways to rethink our dependence on digital entertainment, including television, video games, smartphones, tablets, and computers. Find tips and techniques to make going screen free easier for our families and understand the importance on why screen free time is vital. Going screen free at meal time, an hour before bed, or part (or all) of the weekend, is a chance for children — and adults — to power down and reconnect with the world around them.
