Thanks so much to the parents at the Swain School for joining me this morning for my Coffee with the Counselor Event  in which we talked about the impact of technology and heavy screen time on kids’ brains, along with ways that parents can help kids manage/mitigate harmful effects of technology.

 

And thanks, in advance, to those who I will meet tonight at St. John Vianney, as I talk on the subject of Bullying Prevention, including how to help kids avoid the cruelty that some kids act out online and through social media.

 

As promised to both amazing groups of parents and caregivers, here are some links that I hope you may find helpful:
