What is it like for our children growing up in the Digital Age? What is the impact of the Digital Age and how do we help minimize harmful effects and find balance? The new film, “Screenagers” addresses these questions, helping parents/guardians feel better equipped to establish balance around screen time. Learn about the impact of violent video games on desensitizing viewers, how do cell phones affect social skills, etc. There is no fee for this film, which will be shown at Groves High School in the auditorium.
