will lead us in a discussion on
“Media, Connectivity and Our Kids”
As we encounter increasing levels of digital connectivity in our lives, it is important to keep in mind that our children have never experienced the world in any other way. Beneath their technological savvy, they still have the same issues of adolescence we have all experienced. They have the same questions, the same concerns, and the same insecurities of that age group. They still look to the adults in their lives for guidance and help. Our children need us to provide boundaries, help them keep things in perspective and to better understand the world. How can we help them manage their online identities and make good decisions about how to move through this hyper-connected world? How do we do this in a way that keeps them safe, fosters independence, and remains true to the values of our families and our community? We will explore the ways in which media and technology have shifted the dynamics of family interactions and are changing the way our children communicate with their peers and with the rest of the world.
We hope you to see you there,
Jennifer Morgan and Liam Pleven
