Presented by Shannon Husk, Prevention and Community Engagement Service Provider
Shannon's presentation will share the Canadian Pediatric Society's recommendations for screen time and why they are making these recommendations. We will talk about what we enjoy about technology and concerns around too much technology use. We will talk about where to limit technology; some filters, apps, search engines, websites and family media use plans that can help will this. We will look at the signs of misuse of technology and what to do about these concerns. I will also share information about what happens in the brain when we use technology and the changes, we are now seeing with prolonged tech use.
Overall, I would like people to hear real life stories connected to the impact of entertainment media on today's families. Shannon will talk about you and your child care and how technology use has effects in that area as well.
