Preparing for Summer Screen Time: A Workshop for Parents of Pre-Teens/Teens
Date and Time: April 27th, 12:30 - 1:30pm
Looking to escape the summer nagging cycle this year? WestCoast Therapy and Wellness invites parents of teens to join us for a one-hour workshop focused on hard skills for limiting screen time and talking to your teen about their online experiences.
This workshop will be an opportunity to explore your own values about tech use, obstacles to reducing and monitoring kids’ time online, and take-home resources for building a summer screen time plan.
Through this workshop, you will learn:
A brief overview of current research on teens and tech
How and when to get your teen’s buy-in for screen limits
In-the-moment skills for talking to teens about online experiences (the good and the bad)
Tools for monitoring and reducing screen time to help you escape the nagging cycle
The aim of this workshop is to take us beyond what we read in the news about teens in the digital age. There will be a combination of didactics, reflection, and tools for your family to use at home, ending with a Q&A.
Who will be leading this workshop?
