"Children & Screen Time: Parenting in the Digital Age"
This talk will focus on what we currently know about children and screen time, and how parents can help kids get the most out of the time they spend in front of screens. Dr. Aguiar will share fact-based (and not fear-based) approaches to helping children thrive in their lives online. Although this talk will be geared towards parents of younger children, all are welcome. A Q&A session will follow, so come with your questions!
