CDS presents free screening

 

The Country Day School is inviting the public to join them on Wednesday, Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. in School’s Performing Arts Centre for a free screening of Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age.
It’s a 68-minute documentary about the impact of the digital age on children and how to help them minimize harmful effects and find balance.
When physician and filmmaker, Delaney Ruston, realized that her own kids were scrolling through life and heard the statistic that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens, she set about creating this documentary that has now been viewed around the world. After seeing the film, parents and students alike have said they feel more confident and better equipped to establish balance around screen time.
“I spent my career in technology. I wasn’t prepared for its effect on my kids,” wrote Melinda Gates, philanthropist and wife of Microsoft founder Bill Gates, in an Aug. 24 editorial on parenting in The Washington Post
This event is free and open to the local community – tell your friends! Seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. While registration is required, tickets will not be provided, and they ask that you please check-in upon arrival. RSVP at www.cds.on.ca – learn more at www.screenagersmovie.com
