The Blanchard PTF and Acton Boxborough Family Network are bringing Screenagers to the Acton/Boxborough community. This training is free of charge and was funded through a grant by CHNA15, and was made possible by Determination of Need funds received from Lahey Hospital and Medical Center and Winchester Hospital.
Registration is required. Please click the ticket link to register for our free ticket to this event.
Please join us to view the movie Screenagers, followed by a fa...cilitated discussion led by Boxborough's Community Services Coordinator Lauren Abraham, LICSW. The discussion will focus on how each of us can help our children make healthy choices in daily life that balance the benefits of technology and positive, face-to-face social interactions. Geared towards adults, including parents, caregivers, educators, and community members, who work with middle and high school aged children.
Award-winning SCREENAGERS probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director's own, and depicts messy struggles, over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists solutions emerge on how we can empower kids to best navigate the digital world.
