How Technology & Social Media Impact Kids’ Brains & Behavior0
COVID has changed our lives in countless ways, even right down to my small corner of the world of offering Coffee with the Counselor workshops for parents & caregivers. Since our last event in March 2020, I’ve changed schools and states–but am happy to resume these events live in my new school community in Massachusetts and online via this Blog.
This month’s topic is: How Technology & Social Media Impact Kids’ Brains & Behavior
I’ll be offering it to my home school community via Zoom on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at 6:30pm and will post the recording link for you to view right here, following the workshop.
Below, please find some of the content and links that we won’t have time to share in the 1-hour session, but that I want to provide for you as follow up resources.
