The Millburn Municipal Alliance invites community members to its ongoing series for parents: Empower Hour
Too Much Technology is Making Parenting Really Stressful!
Monday, May 1 --11 a.m., Millburn Public Library
MMAC invites you to Join Nancy Kislin, Family Psychotherapist, and Parenting Coach to discuss parenting kids of all ages in the era of ever-present technology.
TechnoParenting…The Stress and Parenting Challenges in the Era of Social Media, Cellphone Addiction and Binge Watching!
This new landscape demands that we parent in a positive, active and directive style!
Do you know what your child is doing on their phone?
Are they following YouTube “stars”, being exposed to SnapChat images, addicted to Netflix or maybe even making and watching racy videos on musical.ly?
Our kids' pre-occupation, reliance, and even obsession with their technology may be permanently altering their brains, and decreasing the development of skills necessary for self- control and impulse control.
This trend unfortunately often leads to an increase in Anxiety, Depression and Addictive behaviors.
Strategies, of course, will be discussed!
Looking forward to seeing you!
