Student Government at South Middle School Hosts: Screenagers. All are welcome!
We are thrilled to present SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age, a documentary about the biggest parenting issue of our time.
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 happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might impact their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston 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 also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.
SCREENAGERS addresses the most pervasive parenting issue of our time head on—depicting teen struggles over social media, video games and internet addiction. The film empowers kids to best navigate the digital world and provides practical resources to help them do it. Please join us for this event on February 15th.
We are charging $5.00 a ticket per person. This will cover the price of the film and dinner which will follow afterwards in the cafeteria. If you have little ones, we will utilize some of our volunteers and student government kids to watch them for you while you enjoy the show. We will then bring them to the cafeteria so they can enjoy a nice dinner as well. Again for only $5.00 you will get to:
1. Watch the film Screenagers (approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes)
2. Enjoy a nice dinner
3. Take part in a panel discussion following dinner.
We hope to see you on February 15th at 5:00pm at South Middle School, in Newburgh, NY.
