A conversation about teens, parents and media use!

Wednesday, Dec. 11th

7 pm

Auditorium, F.A. Day Middle School

21 Minot Pl, Newton, MA 02460

Featuring:

Sonia Livingstone, London School of Economics

David Luis Ortega, Private Practice, Cambridge, MA

Moderated by Nancy Baym, Microsoft Research New England
 

This event will bring experts and the community together to discuss many of the concerns parents and teens have about media use. We will bring research evidence and practical advice to bear on understanding questions like: What realistic risks may teens face with their media use? How can teens benefit most from digital media? How can parents create and enforce appropriate boundaries for their teens’ media use to best balance risks and opportunities?

We will conclude with a half hour for parents to mix and mingle and compare strategies and experiences. Parents from all of the Newton middle schools are welcome.
