Join the JCC for a special event with Instagram personalities Ilana Wiles (@MommyShorts) and Eva Amurri Martino (@thehappilyeva). Hear about their experiences parenting while maintaining an active social media presence. They will discuss subjects such as explaining social media to younger children and setting reasonable parameters in the social media era. Learn how they juggle the conflict that evolves when you try to limit your kids’ screen time while having a job that involves spending a lot of time on your phone yourself.
Their conversation will be moderated by the host of the podcast Call Your Mother and Kveller contributing editor, Jordana Horn.
Wine reception with Insomnia Cookies to follow.
The event will take place on Thursday, December 12th from 8–9:30pm at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan (334 Amsterdam Ave at 76th Street).
Tickets are $25 for members and $30 for non-members.
