Screen time is becoming a topic of concern for parents as their children spend more and more time in front of screens at school and in their free time. Screen time can affect a child's health, disrupt sleep patterns, and cause anxiety and attention problems. As parents face these issues, they need to be informed in order to make the best decisions for their children and themselves.
To bring about more understanding of the issue, Hazen Union School will be hosting a screening of Screenagers, a documentary focusing on how to navigate the digital world with teenagers. "...With surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance." This event is a lead up to Hazen's Screen Free Challenge, which will take place during the school day December 21st.
Hazen invites the communities served by Orleans Southwest Supervisory Union to this screening being held Monday, December 19th at 6:00pm in the Hazen auditorium.
