Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age FREE Screening & Discussion
We are thrilled to present SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age, a documentary about the biggest parenting issue of our time. With summertime just around the corner and even more hours for endless time in front of a screen, this documentary is a must see!
Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might impact 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 and also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.
SCREENAGERS addresses the most pervasive parenting issue of our time head on—depicting teen struggles over social media, video games and internet addiction. The film empowers kids to best navigate the digital world and provides practical resources to help them do it.
The George Ranch High School PTO will be moderating the discussion after the film. Admission is FREE although seating is limited so please RSVP by clicking HERE and using the Register Link in the above right corner. Bring your kids of all ages and don't forget to invite your friends and neighbors as this event is open to the entire community! Donations are welcome to help support the GRHS PTO Scholarship Fund and the cost associated to bring this film to our community. Donations can be made the night of the event with cash or check or online anytime with credit card by clicking here.
