Seminar on Tech & Youth for Parents Occurring Feb. 11

The next seminar on Parenting in the Digital Age: Technology and Youth will take place on Monday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. at Thomas Jefferson Elementary (601 S. Oak St., Falls Church). The Health & Wellness Advisory Committee sponsors this Parent Series talk. Teens and “tweens” spend an average of more than 5 hours a day on screen time (excluding schoolwork), and devices are often used to displace emotions. Christina Frank, LMFT, will speak at length on this topic. The evening is for all K-12 parents. Frank will touch on emotional/social and brain development, inappropriate content, family contracts and more.
