"Raising Digital Natives: A Conversation on Screen Time and Social Media" is a free, family-friendly, bilingual, educational event on Tuesday, February 27th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm that is open to all community members throughout Santa Cruz County. This is an in person event at Branciforte Middle School. All information will be presented in English and Spanish. The evening will begin by screening the award winning film “Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age.” Screenagers is an award-winning film that probes into the vulnerable corners of family life and depicts messy struggles over social media, video games and academics. The film offers solutions on how we can help our kids navigate the digital world. After the screening we will have a panel of experts in the areas of pediatric medicine, youth mental health, education, and a high school student who will take questions, make tangible recommendations (such as waituntil8th.org ) for caregivers, and open a dialogue with audience members. Parents, students 12 years old and over*, family members, and caregivers are encouraged to attend, learn, collaborate, and be part of the solution! **On site childcare is available for children under 12. Light refreshments will be served and kid friendly door prizes will be available.**
