Technology and Activity: What’s the right balance for your kids?

Balanced Technology Management for Children and Youth: An evening workshop for parents

TV, video games, Internet, movies, cell phones and handheld devices occupy the majority of a child’s waking hours. In fact, a Kaiser Foundation study shows that on average children spend 7.5 HOURS PER DAY on entertainment technologies.

To what degree is dependence on electronic devices affecting your child’s health and development? How can you change your child’s path to a better, healthier future?

Join Cris Rowan, creator and CEO of Zone’in Programs Inc., in a lively and engaging evening workshop where you’ll learn how to balance your child’s technology use with real-world activity. You’ll:

  • Gain critical information about the impact of entertainment technology on your child’s development.
  • Learn how to evaluate your family’s balance between technology use and other non-technology activities.
  • Understand how to apply Balanced Technology Management (BTM) initiatives, including steps to disconnect your children from technology.
