iChild? or I, Child! Sharon Maxwell PhD (speaker)

Aligning Communication Technology with Values that Nurture a Healthy Child, Community, and World.

From smartphones to laptops, from texting to Facebook, communication technology delivers to our children a new online environment, providing an infinite source of information, stimulation, and opportunities for communication. Raising healthy and responsible children in this online, in-your-face world has never been more challenging or more important. We are all witnessing the increased influence of the media and peers on how our children think and feel about themselves and the world around them. The effect on our children is profound.

This presentation shows parents how kids are using and abusing communication technology and helps parents set balanced, realistic guidelines that bring the Internet into alignment with family schedules and values.
