Parenting in the Age of Social Media

In an effort to better understand our children’s social media use and to provide support for purposeful parenting of children and social media, the Elementary School held a Parent Coffee Morning..

Principal Roberta Wiens, Vice Principal Kit Wilding, School Psychologist Lesley Clark, and Technology Integrator Claire Wachowiak discussed current research as parents discussed ways in which they tackle social media issues within their own homes.

Also presented were results from a current survey given to fourth and fifth grade students. The survey asked students questions regarding using technology at home, what social media apps they use, and what it means to be a good digital citizen. From this, we discussed how to best guide students to having a healthy, well-balance digital life; at home and at school. All in all, it was a good morning for responsible technology use!
