Second in a Series of Parent Led Conversations
The most recent Parent Conversation, How Much is too Much?, focused primarily on the use and exposure of technology by and with children. The discussion was facilitated by LMS parent Valerie Overton and parents of a wide range of children participated.
Comments and questions included topics such as the balance of screen time and strategies around it, social media and both its positive and negative impacts, information available via the internet for better or worse, and the sharing of some lessons learned by parents of older children.
The take-away from the conversation is this: Technology is here to stay. Parents need to look at each of their children indivdually when it comes to their use of technology, and it is our responsibility as parents to stay on top of our awareness of what is available in this ever and quickly changing media.
