Parenting in the Digital Age with Dr. Eric Anctil
Cathedral School, Tuesday, October 28th at 7:00 p.m.
Parenting is hard. Parenting in the Digital Age is really hard. With numerous social networks, ubiquitous access to anything, anytime, anywhere, and almost non-stop stimulation when “plugged in,” it’s no wonder kids (and the rest of us) are so mesmerized by the new digital world. It’s also no wonder why there is so much conflict around digital spaces and behaviors. Come listen and discuss strategies for parenting in the Digital Age with Professor Eric Anctil as we explore our new reality and how best to not only survive the digital revolution, but to help our kids thrive in it.
