Pizza Night Parent Outreach
Digital Parenting in K-8: getting it right at any age
6:00pm, Tuesday, November 13 at Pali Elementary
Should your child be spending time online? Does your child want to play video games or watch YouTube for hours? Do you really know what your child is playing or watching? Need some advice and guidance? Please join Mr. Saunders, Paige Lahaise (Instructional Technology Facilitator), and Teacher Valerie at Pali Elementary for an evening of pizza, mingling and an insightful talk by Common Sense Media’s Dr. Yalda Uhls and American Academy of Pediatrics Spokesperson, Dr. Cori Cross, M.D., who will provide guidance, assurance, and extremely useful information for parents of children growing up in today’s digital world.
Dr. Uhls’ book Media Moms & Digital Dads: A Fact-Not-Fear Approach to Parenting in the Digital Age hit the bestseller list for Amazon new releases and Book Soup and is used as a textbook in college level psychology courses. Dr. Cross not only co-authored the AAP’s policy statement, “Media Use in School-Aged Children and Adolescents,” but also was the co-author of the accompanying technical report, “Children and Adolescents and Digital Media.” These two experts have a wealth of knowledge, and we will be taking questions in advance via a survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2LK99S9) so that parents’ concerns can be addressed. We look forward to seeing you there!
Please RSVP via the e-mailed survey so that we have enough pizza for all! Child care will be available 5:45pm – 7:45pm courtesy of the YMCA at $10 per student, including a movie, popcorn & a drink. Reserve your spot with the YMCA today as space is limited! For more information, email Teacher Valerie at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
