Teen and Social Media Use: A Community Workshop for Parents of Middle School Students

The Day PTO has extended an invitation to all Newton Public Middle Schools’ parents to an important discussion for this Wednesday, December 11 at 7:00pm in the F. A. Day Auditorium.

This event will bring experts and the community together to discuss many of the concerns parents and teens have about media use. We will bring research evidence and practical advice to bear on understanding questions like: What realistic risks may teens face with their media use? How can teens benefit most from digital media? How can parents create and enforce appropriate boundaries for their teens’ media use to best balance risks and opportunities? We will conclude with a half hour for parents to mix and mingle and compare strategies and experiences. Parents from all of the Newton middle schools are welcome.
