Social Media and the Impact on Children

You asked. We listened. The St. Stephen School ATP is excited to bring back Dr. Shreya Hessler to the school hall on Wednesday evening April 29th at 7 pm to discuss Social Media and the Impact on Children. St. Stephen School parents will receive 1 service hour for attending.

Social Media and electronic usage has become part of the American fabric particularly with respect to how people connect with others and stay informed. Research indicates however, that children and adolescents often have challenges in regulating how much time to spend on electronics and how to emotionally cope with the content they view. Join Dr. Shreya Hessler, licensed psychologist and director of The MINDset Center, to learn tips and strategies for managing choices for children in the digital age. Topics will include a review of tech related language and communication behaviors of children, commonly used social media apps and electronics, guidelines for managing access to content, and a discussion about how to talk to children about what they see online.
