Chappaqua Moms presents "SCREENAGERS": Growing Up in the Digital Age
Wed, September 7, 2016, 7:15 PM – 9:15 PM EDT
Chappaqua Moms, a virtual Facebook community which includes over 6600 members, is thrilled to present its first-ever "live" community event:
During the frenetic yet optimistic fresh-new-notebook feeling of the first week back at school, we are inviting parents *along with* their children ages 10-18 to come view then talk about a topic that pervades all of our households.
"SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age" is a documentary about one of the biggest parenting issues of our modern time.
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.
This event is generously sponsored by Camp Breezemont, Armonk New York.
All proceeds from ticket sales will be divided evenly among these 2 local charities:
"Chappaqua Cares" and "A Kids' Brain Tumor Cure".
