SCREENAGERS, Screening and Program for Parents and Kids @ Fry Family YMCA
Apr 25 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and six-second attention span? If so, or you are concerned that your young children are headed in that direction, join the Fry Y and KidsMatter for a movie screening and program that has been conducted over 5,000 times by community providers in over 60 countries!

Screenagers: How Much Screen Time is Healthy? is a documentary about growing up in the digital age. It takes a deeply personal approach as one doctor probes into the vulnerable corners of family life—including her own—to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics, and internet addiction.

Screenagers reveals how adults can empower children, teens, and young adults—who spend an average of 6.5 hours a day on cell phones, computers, and other devices—to best navigate the digital world and find balance.
