Workshop: Raising Kids in a Digital World – Spring Arbor
May 9 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Do you know what apps are on your child’s phone? What are the latest social media trends? Do you wonder about how to talk to kids about online pornography, limit screen time, and protect them from digital strangers?

In the digital age, parents must be observant, engaged, and informed. We’ll discuss digital realities, strategies, and practical solutions that will enlighten, equip and encourage parents who want to teach their children how to use technology responsibly. The talk will include specific recommendations for filters and detailed explanations of popular apps and parental controls.

The Protect Young Eyes team, led by founder, Chris McKenna, presents around the United States to students and adults about how to use technology responsibly.

Free admission, and free childcare provided for ages infant – 6th grade.
