Event description

Description

We are thrilled to present SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age, a documentary about the biggest parenting issue of our time. www.screenagersmovie.com

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.

Watch the Movie Trailer

Following the film, there will be discussion featuring a panel of local experts and resources in a Q & A format.

Food trucks will be on site by 5pm and the cafeteria will be open to enjoy a pre-event dinner. The presentation will take place in the gym/auditorium and doors for the event will open at 6:15, with the presentation beginning promptly at 6:45.

This is a joint effort of the Severna Park Schools PTA/PTO/PTSO groups.
