Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age to be Shown on March 14

Members of the Glenview/Northbrook communities are invited to attend a special screening of an award-winning documentary that addresses issues parents and children face in today's digital world.  On Tuesday, March 14, at 7:00 p.m., Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age will be shown in the Glenbrook South High School Auditorium.

A New York Times article on the documentary states: “The average child in America spends more time consuming electronic media than going to school, with many teen-agers going online almost constantly.”

Screenagers depicts family struggles over social media, video games, academics, and internet addiction. As authors and brain scientists offer surprising insights, solutions are offered on how parents and community members can empower kids to best navigate the digital world.
A question and answer conversation with a panel of experts and students will follow the screening. The event is free and open to students, parents and all community members. Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age is sponsored by CHARACTER COUNTS! in Glenview, Maple PTO, Youth Services of Glenview, and Family Service Center of Wilmette · Glenview · Northbrook · Kenilworth.
