Parent Workshop – 'Healthy Balance: Screen Time'

The PSB has partnered with Massachusetts Partnership for Youth (MPY) to hold the parent workshop Healthy Balance: Screen Time by Cory Mashburn.


Increasingly, data suggests that exposing young people to large amounts of time in front of screens (TV, computer, tablet, or smartphone) can have negative effects on physical and mental development. This includes issues with memory, attention, and language skills. The workshop Healthy Balance: Screen Time is designed to provide the tools and vocabulary needed for children and adolescents to make wise choices about balancing daily screen use, while focusing more attention on exercise and nutrition.
