Kids on Screen

What we really want -  is your participation!!!
Quoting Dr. Douglas Gentile from his website, "Parents sometimes feel overwhelmed and wonder if they are actually able to make a difference in a media-saturated world.  The good news is that the research demonstrates that parents are actually in a very powerful position.  When parents set limits on the amount of screen time their children watch, set limits on the content so that it is age-appropriate, and talk to them about what they see and hear, this is a powerful protective factor for children."


You can make the difference!!!


Your involvement can be:


As simple as having a discussion with your own child.


Having a discussion with your child and his/her friends.


Discussing this issue within the class or at school.


Discussing it in your community.


Discussing about it  at a city, state or at a national level.


Your involvement is Important!!!
