Submitted

SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age” is selling out audiences around the country and is the first feature documentary to explore the impact of screen technology on kids and to offer parents proven solutions that work.

The documentary reveals stories that depict struggles over social media, video games, academics, and internet addiction. SCREENAGERS goes far beyond exposing the risks of screen time, but reveals multiple approaches on how parents and educators can work with kids to help them achieve a healthy amount of screen time. SCREENAGERS is known as a community viewing model, in hopes that parents and educators can start a conversation nationwide about how screen time impacts our lives.

The upcoming movie screening will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 18, from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Mandell JCC of Greater Hartford, 335 Bloomfield Ave., West Hartford, and is appropriate for parents as well as teens. In fact, parents are encouraged to attend this screening and discussion along with their children.

A mental health professional from Jewish Family Services will also be on hand to discuss the movie and offer advice to parents. Teenagers will provide their own testimonials on how they deal with social media.

A panel discussion following the film will be moderated by Dennis House, Channel 3 Eyewitness News Anchor and Face the State moderator.

 

Admission is free with advance reservation. To reserve your tickets call 860-236-1927 ext. 7129 or go to www.jfshartford.org/screenagers.
