Princeton Common Ground Presents
Art of Screen Time Author and NPR Lead Education Reporter
Live Webinar, May 6, 7:30 PM
Parenting Past a Pandemic
Princeton Common Ground is proud to host Anya Kamenetz, lead education reporter at NPR and acclaimed author on Thursday, May 6. After 2020, parenting will never be the same. Our families have drastically changed their relationships with technology during the time of the coronavirus pandemic. Anya Kamenetz delivers a deeply-researched, candid, and refreshing view on managing the role of technology in kids’ lives — and in our own lives in her talk, “Parenting Past a Pandemic.”
Anya, an expert on learning and technology and an educational futurist with a passion for the complexities of how we learn work, and live in the new millennium will share what the future might bring and how to survive the ubiquity of technology to create room for a more happy, healthy, balanced life. The need to build resilience in our children is also a key element for post-coronavirus parenting and will be explored.
