Practical Parenting: Be Social Media Smart
Parenting is hard. Always has been. Always will be. But modern parents are facing challenges past generations didn't have to face . . . because they didn't exist yet. Like social media. You can learn how to be Social Media Smart at our next Practical Parenting on Monday, March 11, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. There are benefits of social media but also evidence of emotional and behavioral side effects. As a parent, what should you know and what should you consider doing about it? Dale Wisely, Ph.D. will help you think it through. Dr. Wisely is Director of Family Life at Prince of Peace Catholic Church & School. Prior to joining Prince of Peace, he was Director of Student Services at Mountain Brook Schools for 12 years, where he continues to serve as a consultant. He has been a child and adolescent clinical psychologist for 36 years. There is no registration required for this event. Simply follow the stars through the Kid Zone to the Youth Program Room.
