The Pasadena Waldorf School Parent Enrichment Mandate Group (PEMG) is thrilled to present SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age

SCREENAGERS addresses the most pervasive parenting issue of our time head on—depicting teen struggles over social media, video games and internet addiction. The film empowers kids to best navigate the digital world and provides practical resources to help them do it.

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might impact their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.

The screening is part of a school wide effort to rise awareness about the impact of media in children, teenagers and adults.

On Sunday, January 22, there will be a screening open to the public in the Community Room from 10am to 12pm. Tickets cost $10 per person. Middle School and High School parents are strongly encouraged to attend so conversations can continue at home. Children in 7th grade and older are welcome to the Sunday screening. There will be childcare available for children in 1st grade and up.
Seating is limited. Reserve your spot today
