Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age 

Feeling guilty and confused about screen time for your children? Not sure what limits are best, especially around mobile phones, social media, gaming, and how to monitor online homework? An unexplored parenting issue of our time. 

Meet Hannah, a 14-year old victim of social media bullying who struggled trying to hide her social media use from her mom. And Andrew, whose love of video games turned into an addiction taking him from earning straight A’s to flunking out of college.

Interwoven into these stories, are cutting edge science and insights from thought leaders Peggy Orenstein, Sherry Turkle, Simon Sinek, as well as leading brain scientists who present evidence on the real changes in the brain when kids are on screens. SCREENAGERS goes far beyond exposing the risks of screen time, it reveals multiple approaches on how parents and educators can work with kids to help them achieve a healthy amount of screen time.

· The movies are informative without being alarmist

· The movies create the space needed for healthy conversations to happen

· The movies are relatable by using real-world people and examples

· Kids are prompted into action and taking the initiative

· The ideas are relevant to the whole family, not just kids

    * Seating is unallocated. You may sit where you wish.

    The evening includes the movie screening and post movie discussions and a Q&A session with moderators and representatives of Relationship Australia Northern Territory.
