The Digital Dilemma for Parents of Children 2-7 Private Offering for Imperial Oil/Esso Staff

January 25th (Tuesday) 12:00pm – 1:00pm

There is no magical formula to calculate how much screen time is healthy or problematic. As parents, you try to navigate the “latest” learning about screen time. In this class we proceed on the premise that each participant makes their own determination around what works for their family. We offer communication tools that help you resolve conflict around screens for young children.

*This class will be presented through an online ZOOM platform, accessible by computer or cell phone.

The Digital Dilemma for Parents of Children 7-12 Private Offering for Imperial Oil/Esso Staff

January 26th (Wednesday) 12:00pm – 1:00pm

Managing screen time becomes more complicated as children get older, as screens are enmeshed in almost every aspect of a child’s life – from school, social, home, entertainment, creativity. As parents, we want to have a hands-on approach while making sure our kids have balance. In this class we discuss ideas to help our children learn to manage screen time. We discuss ways to set limits and how to approach this. We will learn ways to focus on communication and not on control. Each family will know what they are comfortable with and what works best for them and their child.

This class will be presented through an online ZOOM platform, accessible by computer or cell phone.
