Raising teens in a digital age — Open sessions

May 31st, 2018

Join us for an open conversation about the realities of raising teens and tweens in a digital age. These FREE sessions are open to parents, guardians, community members, and youth 12+. Facilitated by Colleen Teske, PHPS Coordinator of School Counseling, the sessions will cover questions like:

Why do our kids love selfies so much?
Why are they getting hundreds of Snapchats everyday?
Why is taking their phone away such a scary threat?
What should I know about how and why they send images to one another?
How do I guide their use of a tool they know better than I do?
How do I know if my child is in danger online?

We will explore the common apps youth spend much of their time on, why it has become so incredibly addictive, and what we can do as the adults in the room to support them and create healthy boundaries for tech use.
