Raising a Competent Child in the Digital Age

Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 10:00am


Join Pediatric Psychologist Jodie M. Ambrosino, Ph.D. and Clinton Youth and Family Services at Henry Carter Hull Library for a workshop that will explore the science behind the impact of the digital age on youths. Learn ways to foster a competent, responsible, and healthy relationship with social media at every age.

From Dr. Ambrosino:

Kids are taught to read, they are taught to write. They are taught how to play a sport and given the building blocks to make art. Similarly, they need to be taught the skills to live in a digital age, where they are bombarded with information not all of which is true or healthy. Parents, children and teens need to be informed about this technology so that they can develop the skills to manage themselves in this digital world safely. During this workshop, we will talk about some of the science behind the development of social media and its impact on health so that youth and adults can engage in it competently and responsibly.

Jodie M. Ambrosino, Ph.D. is a Pediatric Psychologist and has worked with children, adolescents, young adults and their families for over 15 years. She is committed to helping youth and parents build strong relationships, cope with challenge and cultivate resilience.
