Screenagers is the first feature documentary to explore the impact of screen technology on kids and to offer parents proven solutions that work. Melbourne Grammar School is delighted to host an exclusive screening of Screenagers at our Senior School Campus for the Grimwade House and Wadhurst Campus community.
"American Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well with her own daughter.
In Screenagers, Delaney 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 offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance."
We encourage you to attend this educational screening, as the film explores these issues in a fun and engaging way, offering real solutions for parents. You are welcome to bring along your children (aged 10+).
Coffee and biscuits will be provided, and you will be asked to respond to a short survey at the conclusion of the film.
A screening will also run on Thursday 25 October.
