Technology Addiction- virtual presentation for parents/guardians

27 May

Good morning Brownridge families,

Join us next Thursday, June 3 at 7:30pm for an informative virtual presentation about the technology our kids are using today (and us too!). Technology addiction (similar to cigarette addiction) is pervasive and is having an impact. Learn how different Apps keep us wanting more and what we can do to support our children to be more aware of and manage the Apps they use. See the attachment for more details.

Register here and a link will be sent to you closer to the date.

Have a great day!
The Brownridge Team
