    FREE FILM SCREENING FOLLOWED BY A FACILITATED DISCUSSION

    ** Appropriate for adults, parents of kids of all ages, and students 10 and older **

    REGISTER HERE

    Join BStrong Together and AMITA Health Behavioral Medicine Institute for this FREE screening of "Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age" and facilitated discussion to follow.

    Film Synopsis
    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 with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well. 

    In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney 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 offers solutions on how adults can
    empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.

    To support our learning experience, we will follow the screening with a discussion facilitated by Jackie Rhew from AMITA Health Behavioral Health and The Center for Emotional Wellness.  Jackie will be joined by Mandy Burbank from AMITA Health Behavioral Health and Dr. Matt Fuller, Assistant Superintendent of Technology and Innovation for Barrington 220.  We encourage parents and students to come together for this important conversation.

    @Home in the Digital Age

    Join BStrong Together and Barrington 220 for the second event in our @Home in the Digital Age series.

    6:00 - 7:00 pm  App Showcase - Student demonstrators will teach parents, educators, and community members about apps commonly used by our children and youth.

    7:00 - 8:30 pm  Guest Speaker and Discussion - Dr. Devoah Heitner - Raising Digital Natives founder and author of "Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World." - will speak followed by a community conversation about how to become digital mentors instead of digital monitors.

    Screenwise offers an encouraging perspective on how to thoughtfully guide kids in the digital age. Many parents and educators worry that kids are addicted, detached, or distracted because of their digital devices. Digital Citizenship expert Devorah Heitner, however, believes that technology offers huge potential to our children--if parents help them. 

    The core message of the book is that kids need mentoring, not (just) monitoring, and that kids deserve more empathy from adults about growing up in the digital age. Texting, gaming and social media are social spaces requiring social skills. The book offers advice on helping kids navigate friendship and identity issues that are common among new texters, gamers and social media users. 

    Screenwise presents practical parenting "hacks": quick ideas that you can implement today that will help you understand and relate to your digital native. The book empowers parents to recognize ways that wisdom that they have gained throughout their lives is a relevant and urgently needed supplement to their kid's digital savvy.  Based on real-life stories from families, the latest research, and Dr. Heitner's experience working with schools, Screenwise teaches parents what they need to know in order to raise responsible and empathetic kids in the digital age.
