Part 1 of 3 – for young children

In today’s technology-enhanced world, there are many options available for our children: children’s shows, apps, movies on Netflix and more. Participants in this webinar will learn about the effects (both positive and harmful) of screen time for different age ranges: birth to 2, early elementary and late elementary/beyond. Participants will evaluate their own use of screen time with children, discuss the different types of screen time, and develop practical strategies for using screen time with children of all ages.
