Kellogg PTSA Presents, “Screenagers” ~ April 6th, 7 – 9 PM

The Kellogg PTSA will present “Screenagers” on Wednesday, April 6th, 7 – 9 PM, in the Kellogg cafeteria. Information about the film is below. The film is recommended for parents and children ten-years-old and up. There will be some discussion after the film. The cafeteria can seat approximately 300 people.

About the Film:

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well.

In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. 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.  *From the http://www.screenagersmovie.com/about/ website.
