Following up on the Thursday, February 17, 2022 Program
Now more than ever, technology plays a vital role in all our lives. It keeps us connected and can educate, illuminate and entertain. With increased use, kids can develop an unhealthy dependence on tech as an escape or way to avoid life’s challenges.
Gaming, social media, and streaming entertainment can be fun and relaxing, but moderation can easily slide toward dependence. We’ll provide strategies to help our kids develop a healthy relationship with technology, and skills to practice self-care.
Special guest, Michael Blanche, MSS, LCSW, a counselor specializing in adolescents and young adults, discussed the real-world challenges facing adolescents and young adults.
