Child and Adult Care

Upcoming Webinar!

Studies show the average person spends up to 6hr/day on social networking sites, and the number is even higher for kids. Social media’s hard to ignore so abstinence might not be an option, but you can still practice #SafeSocial. Adapting her TED talk (nearly 4M views), Bailey Parnell will illustrate how the current social media landscape impacts mental wellbeing, explain the effects it has on us and our kids, and offer five steps towards #SafeSocial. We hope you’ll join us!

Register here for this free webinar on November 8th at 12 p.m.!
