Mindful technology evening for parents

Erica Marcus, educator and wellness instructor from “Wise Minds, Big Hearts,” led parents last Monday in an evening of reflection that began with an inquiry into our own technology use as a window into understanding the impact of screens and devices for our children.

The conversation centered on how to be more intentional in determining your family’s “technology diet” and reclaim “screen free family time,” including ideas for how to respond when tech use feels out of balance. An interesting related article on rising concerns about the impact of devices on children appeared last Friday in the New York Times.

You can access the “personal investigation” exercise along with Erica’s book recommendations on the Wise Minds, Big Hearts website resource page. We look forward to inviting Erica back each fall to jumpstart these important conversations with our children.
