AFE, along with the WFBHS Parent Association, will be presenting Screenagers on Thursday, January 26 at 7pm in the WFB High School Auditorium.

As devices turn into necessities and in the hands of increasingly younger users, many of us struggle with controlling our children’s screen time and monitoring their social media.

At what age should my child get a phone?  How do I set reasonable limits with my tween?  What are the negative effects of our digital habits?  These are some of the questions explored by  Stanford-trained physician and social change filmmaker, Dr. Delaney Ruston, in this documentary.

From www.screenagersmovie.com :

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.
