Some of our staff was awarded a grant from the Roseville Foundation for the screening of the film "Screenagers-growing up in the digital age". Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston wondered about the impact of screen time and the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well.
In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.
We served dinner and had well over 100 adults present and as many children. There was a great turnout and it proved to be a great evening of community and learning.
