See “Screenagers” at Trinity March 7
Are your children scrolling through life with rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston discovered 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.
In “Screenagers,” 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.
Join the Trinity community for a viewing of “Screenagers” at 7 pm, Tuesday, March 7, at the Lower School campus in the Fellowship Hall. This event is free. For more information about the film, visit www.screenagersmovie.com.
