SCREEN PROTECT YOUR FAMILY – AUGUST 21ST

On Saturday, August 21st, from 8:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. Twickenham will be hosting an event called Screen Protecting Your Family. The purpose of the event is to educate our families on the hazards of screen time/social media and to present options on how they can better get involved in their teen’s personal and technological lives. Dr. Joshua Straub, Ph.D., will be explaining the dangers of screens in the home, educating how to bridge the emotional gap and fill the emotions voids left by screen time, and demonstrating how to bridge the spiritual gap left by screen time. We believe that learning how to manage and engage screens are imperative to family life in our current culture. Please make plans to join this event.

Cost?        $5 per person
