About this Event

Parenting with smartphones and the multitude of screens leave us facing obstacles no other generation has experienced.

It can be daunting to lead as parents and determine our child’s readiness for a smartphone, despite frequent requests to have screens at the same time their friends.

While there is a wide curve in learning how to parent through constantly changing technology, our children need family and trusted community to guide them through how to manage having the world at their fingertips. It is critical to ask not only when to introduce these devices, but how to do so well.

Understanding culture, consumerism, and the influence of tech companies are now a basic requirements for smart screen parenting. Fear not. Champion for your child and put safety first when it comes to technology

Kelly Newcom will deliver powerful insight to help parents and family members through the process of teaching healthy smartphone habits. She will explore...

  • Reasons to give or not give your child a smartphone
  • Differences in devices from the perspective of safety
  • Where and when to implement restrictions
  • How to monitor devices, set boundaries, and stick to them.

It may seem like a vast undertaking, but knowledge is power. Our children are worth the research required to guide them through healthy development of technology use. You won’t want to miss this important conversation.

Movie Ticket Contest!

All attendees of our February YMCA events will be entered in a raffle to win two free movie tickets! Winner will be contacted on leap day, 2/29.
