Disconnect to Reconnect: What Parents Need to Know About Teens and Tech

About This Series

Technology has become a significant tool in our day-to-day lives – and it’s constantly evolving. Children are being introduced to technology at younger ages than ever before and have become incredibly versatile when it comes to navigating it. From growing issues like cyberbullying, internet safety, sharing information online, today’s families are faced with a unique set of challenges when it comes to managing technology use. It’s important as educators, parents/caregivers and frontline workers to become aware of these changes and the impacts that excessive use can have – as well as the safeguards that exist to protect ourselves. This education series is designed to deepen your knowledge of gaming, gambling and technology use, dispel some of the myths that exist around it and provide you with a set of practical tools. The Gaming and Gambling Awareness Program is proud to offer a monthly 4-part guest speaker series about parenting in the digital age.

There will be one session held per month during the evening from 6:30-7:30pm EST, including a 15-minute Q&A period at the end.

We will have a gift card draw at the end of each session for those who attend!
