Making the Virtual Virtuous: Common Sense Guidelines for Raising Kids in the Digital Age

Managing modern technology can be exhausting and stressful, potentially prompting us to ask – do we use it or does it use us? It’s an even bigger challenge for parents trying to figure out how to raise healthy children in the digital age.

Many families struggle as they try to maintain common sense limits while seeking balance in using media as a resource and entertainment. Join developmental pediatrician Dr. Mark Bertin, child psychologist Dr. Chris Willard, and Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood’s Screen Time Program manager Jean Rogers in a conversation moderated by Samira Sine, New York Director of Common Sense Media. Starting with the premise that technology is not inherently good or bad, you’ll get an overview of current media research alongside practical, realistic, and engaging, family friendly tools that integrate mindfulness while supporting long term wellbeing in your children.

Cosponsored by Common Sense Media and Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood.

Thursday, June 27, 6:30-8 pm, $20
