Free Parenting Workshop: Frustrated Trying to Manage Your Child’s Media Devices?
March 21 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
About the workshop:
The explosion of digital technology ownership in the last 5-10 years has created a dramatic shift in how youth and families use technology. This workshop will help parents of children 3-12 years of age effectively set parental controls and manage their child’s use of smartphones, tablets, video games and other tech devices. It will include a one-hour discussion about media management tips and resources followed by a one-hour hands-on workshop. During the workshop, parents will be taught how to set parental controls on different devices.
* Light lunch will be served, but you are also welcomed to bring your own lunch.
