This Parent/Caregiver session focuses on all things digital. Your child in Middle/High School has now entered the peak of their digital media lives where cell phone ownership doubles, video game use explodes, and social media use becomes problematic. This session will cover recommendations for family rules, parental controls, family tech plans, as well as suggestions for monitoring your tween/teen’s digital life.
At this age, children encounter situations that will challenge their independence. Parents/Caregivers have an important role to play in providing support and guidance during critical periods.
