Kids, Parents and Technology Program

Join us on Tuesday, October 26 at 7:00 pm as child psychiatrist Dr. Eitan Schwarz presents on the subject of ways to manage kids' media consumption and shows how to use it to enhance their development and family life.  According to Dr. Schwarz, “without active parental planning and supervision, children consume junk media as they do junk food”.  Topics to be discussed will include how to monitor kids’ Internet and texting activity, social networking safety tips, how to talk with kids about what they may encounter on the Internet, and ways to block access to inappropriate sites. This program is for parents and caregivers only. A former Glencoe resident, Dr. Schwarz is the author of Kids, Parents & Technology: An Instruction Guide for Young Families, which can be checked out from the library’s collection.
