ONLINE- Danielle Einstein – Impact of Devices on Brains, Moods & Families

September 22 @ 7:00 pm-8:30 pm

Dr Danielle Einstein – Impact of Devices on Brains, Moods & Families

As a community we want to embrace technology and ensure devices are used to connect and strengthen our families rather than to divide them.  Parenting has always been difficult and as a generation we are the first to confront the impact of personal devices on our families and our school communities. The impact of COVID has left many families reeling.
Danielle will speak about why, when and how we can make changes to our screen use. Her view is grounded in international research and based on the school program “The Dip@School” and her book: “The Dip: A practical guide to take control of screen addiction and reconnect your family.”
