What’s going on in the digital life of your child?
Please join us for our annual “Parenting in the Digital World” workshop. Find out about the “hot topics” of the moment, learn about current research and trends in the realm of kids and technology, and please ask us your questions, share your experiences and advice, and participate in our “digital village” as we raise and educate our students together.
This year, we are excited to welcome certified parent coach Emily McMason. While we regularly talk with students about their lives online and digital behavior, Emily’s expertise and training will help us as parents when we get into more sensitive interpersonal discussions with our kids about privacy, identity, boundaries, difficulties they may encounter online, good decision making, and helpful parenting advice that invites kids to share more with us, not less. Whether they tell you or not, kids still look to the adults in their lives for guidance, especially when it comes to deciding what is appropriate or not. Your voice matters!
