Parenting in the World of Social Media and Technology: Is There an App for That?
Facebook, Twitter, texting, and blogging, are all words that have become common in our society. Many parents and caregivers wonder how they can help their children establish healthy and ethical boundaries when using technology.
Join Dr. Kate Ott, Professor of Ethics at Drew University, and the Reverend Susan Murtha, Interim Senior Minister of First Congregational Church of Branford, on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at the First Congregational Church of Branford, 1009 Main Street, as they help us create best practices for our families, children and youth in the age of ever-changing technology.
As the parent of young children herself, Dr. Kate Ott specializes in the study and teaching of Christian Social Ethics and how it specifically relates to children, youth and young adults.
The Reverend Susan Murtha is the Interim Senior Minister of the First Congregational Church of Branford. She has previously served at the First Congregational Church of Greenwich and the First Congregational Church of Guilford.
“Technology and social media play an important role in the lives of youth,” remarked Reverend Susan Murtha recently. “As parents, grandparents, and caregivers, we can help guide our children to use technology in a healthy, just and life-giving way.”
