Parent Education: Screenagers at the Alamo!

Join us on October 4 at the Alamo Drafthouse for the first in a series of PTA sponsored parent education events focused on raising children in the digital age.

Screenagers introduces questions and offers insight into the challenges of parenting “digital natives”. 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 offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance. We’ve invited a panel of specialists for discussion and Q&A after the movie. We encourage you to bring your upper grade (4th/5th) students and older children as well.

Click here to purchase tickets. Open to the whole community. We expect this event to sell out, so get your tickets now!
