Cottage Lake Elementary PTA and Northshore Council PTSA are thrilled to present "SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age."
When: Friday, November 15, 2019 at 6:30pm
Where: Cottage Lake Elementary Gym
SCREENAGERS addresses the most pervasive parenting issue of our time head on—depicting teen struggles over social media, video games and internet addiction. The film empowers kids to best navigate the digital world and provides practical resources to help them do it.
Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might impact their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. 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 also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.
SCREENAGERS is recommended for ages 10 and older. Parent discretion is advised if bringing younger children. Children who can sit and watch a movie quietly are welcome. No drop offs & no childcare.
*RSVP is not required, but helps us plan. :)
