Screenagers’ film aims to help parents, kids communicate

VERGENNES — The public — particularly parents — is invited to see a screening of “Screenagers — Growing Up in the Digital Age, next Wednesday at Vergennes Union High School.
This award-winning documentary probes the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director’s, and depicts messy struggles over social media, video games, academics and Internet addiction. “Screenagers” is about the impact of the digital age on children and how to help families minimize harmful effects and find balance. Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists, solutions emerge on how we can empower kids to best navigate the digital world. After seeing the film, people have said that they feel more confident and better equipped to establish balance around screen time.
Everyone (students, parents, and community members) is welcome to come on Wednesday, March 29, at 7 p.m. for the screening in the VUHS auditorium; the event is sponsored by the Commodore Parent Teacher Group. The film is a little longer than an hour and there will be a short optional discussion afterwards. Students in grades 7-12 will view and discuss the documentary prior to the 29th. The parents group hopes this allows parents and students to talk with each other about the challenges of the digital age.
