Connecting With Your Child in a Digital World
Parenting in the digital age can be challenging. Social media and technology have become such an important part of your child’s daily life. Please join us for an interactive workshop where we will examine your child’s use of technology, increase awareness of the potential challenges around technology use, and learn practical parenting strategies to maintain connections with your child. The workshop will be facilitated by Middle School Prevention/Intervention counselors Amy Comeau, M.Ed. and Rolanda Prophete, LICSW. This workshop will take place on Tuesday, December 13 from 6:30-8:00 p.m at Brown Middle School, FREE.
