In an effort to promote parent education and student well-being, Saint Lawrence Elementary and Middle School (SLEMS) will host a screening of the documentary SCREENAGERS on November 17.
SCREENAGERS is a documentary that takes a deeply personal approach into the vulnerable corners of family life to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics, and internet addiction.
“This is an important topic to address among parents and children, especially those in middle and high school. We encourage parents to attend with their children to start a dialogue about growing up in the digital age and teaching children how to be healthy communicators and responsible digital citizens,” said Principal Margaret Reynolds.
Through poignant and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.
The screening on November 17 is available to the public and tickets must be purchased in advance. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit, www.saintlawrence.org/slem.
