Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age

06:30 pm - 11/08/2017

@ Oakland Schools - Michigan

2111 Pontiac Lake Rd
Waterford MI  48328



Are you curious about the potential effects of kids “scrolling through life with rapid-fire thumbs and a shorter attention span?”

The Oakland Parent Engagement Network will present SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age, a documentary about one of the biggest parenting issues of our time.

Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw what was happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover potential impact to their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development. It also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance. We hope you’ll come join the viewing and conversation with other curious people interested in helping our students (and adults).
