Kids now spend an average of six hours a day on screens and just 12 minutes outside. As first generation digital parents, how do we help our kids find a better balance between digital life and real life? Join us as we discuss solutions to helping our kids create a healthier relationship with technology. During our one-hour fireside chat, we will discuss: - The impact of screens on adolescent and teen growth and development. - Skills weakened by screen time. - The benefits of time spent in the natural world. - River Mountain and Penn State's digital wellness solutions. - Outdoor experiences for teens and adolescents to discover ech-life balance. - Empowering our kids by redefining daily habits and self-determined goals. - Summer and screen time - outdoor adventure, leadership, growth experiences
