Pre-registration is required. Seminar fee: $10.00 per family, per seminar. Fees collected are donated to student scholarships.
Social Media is all around and there is no escaping the use of it by our children. Often times the approach of telling kids what not to do builds a wall. The presentation is based on the book Social Media Wellness: Helping Tweens and Teens Thrive in an Unbalanced Digital World by Ana Homayoun which focuses on ways to approach the topic with students to assist them in making healthy choices.
