WARP SPEED: Parenting Teens in a Digital Age
April 6, 2016  -  6:30-8:30 pm

Henry Sibley High School – Warrior Hall (third floor)
1897 Delaware Avenue, Mendota Heights

In today’s fast paced world, technology is evolving more rapidly than our ability to understand its long-term impact on our society and our kids. In fact, research suggests that frequent use of entertainment technology by young people is actually changing the way the young brain develops and processes things such as impulse control and perception of harm. The unlimited access kids have to technology today allows them to experience an entire world at their fingertips. And while the use of technology certainly has its benefits, there are also applications that put our kids at greater risk for developing problems with things such as drugs and alcohol or bullying.

Join us for this presentation that will walk through trends, applications, social/emotional/developmental impacts, and how to set healthy and productive boundaries around technology use in your home.
