“Screenagers” at NNHS Nov 29
Save the date: “Screenagers” coming to NNHS on November 29
The Newton North PTSO and the Newton Parent Advisory Council for Special Education are pleased to bring “Screenagers” to Newton North on Tuesday, November 29, from 7:00-9:00 p.m., in the auditorium. “Screenagers” is a documentary about struggles over social media, video games, academics, and internet addiction.
According to the website, “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 offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.”
The movie will be followed by a panel discussion. Panelists will include Henry Turner, principal of Newton North High School; Joani Geltman, MSW, child development and parenting expert; and one or two students. Parents/guardians, middle schoolers, and high schoolers are invited and encouraged to attend this free event.

Copies of Ms. Geltman’s recent book, A Survival Guide to Parenting Teens: Talking to Your Kids About Sexting, Drinking, Drugs, and Other Things That Freak You Out, will be available for purchase at a price of $17 (cash, check, or credit card) after the program.
