Written By: Robert Cox

NEW ROCHELLE, NY — The Ward Elementary School will present a documentary film on how tech time impacts kids’ development. The film offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.

The event will begin at 7 p.m. on February 2nd, 2017 at the William B Ward Elementary School Auditorium in New Rochelle.

Tickets are $5 online and $8 cash only at the door

“Screenagers probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director’s own, and depicts messy struggles, over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction,” according to the film’s website. “Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists solutions emerge on how we can empower kids to best navigate the digital world.”

“The humorous but sobering 68-minute movie examines the impact of the time the average kid spends each day looking at screens NOT including homework — a whopping 6.5 hours — as well as the way screen use is affecting concentration, development and family relationships, said Karen Campbell of B-PEN. “Each screening of the movie “sold out” within hours, reflecting how concerning the issue of adolescent digital screen overuse is for students and parents.”

Free childcare is available for Ward families ONLY in the cafeteria. RSVP at [email protected] with your child’s name and age by Monday, January 30.
