“PARENTING THE iGEN”
Featuring Keynote Speaker, Amie Konwinski
“Do you know what your kids are doing on their smartphones? The fact is our (pre)teens are living in a virtual world where everything they like, post, tweet, snap, follow, send and comment on will be scrutinized for years to come. This digital footprint will impact them in school, sports, relationships, college applications, interviews and even their future careers and families. Now more than ever, it is time for parents to get smart about technology and social media. We must keep our families safe from the pitfalls of being connected 24/7.”
When: Tuesday, February 19, 7:00-8:30 p.m., Presentation and Q&A Session
Where: Mercy Academy, 5801 Fegenbush Lane
Cost: FREE
We envision a society where: Teens are empowered to be safe, authentic and private on social media. Parents are intentionally engaged with their children and the devices and apps they use. Educators are more equipped to manage iGen students in a constantly changing digital environment.
Sponsored by: Mercy Academy & Trinity High School
