PARENTING EVENTS:

Twitter Chat: Let’s talk about Kids and Technology

Posted By:

You’re invited!

The Mother Company is hosting a twitter chat about kids and technology and welcomes you to join!

Technology is here to stay, and there’s nothing we can do about that. Our kids’ childhoods are nothing like the ones we experienced, so how do we parents do this tech thing responsibly with our kids? How much tech exposure is too much? How much is just right? What about screen time? How can we use technology to our kids’ advantage?

So bring your questions and let’s get chatting about this fascinating topic!

GUEST PANEL:
