Reclaiming Childhood in a Digital Age, Richard Freed, Ph.D. 
6:30 - 8:00 pm, UVWS Auditorium

 

The Upper Valley Waldorf School invites you to hear Dr. Richard Freed speak on how to build your child's bond with family and foster school success amid the allure of digital screens.  Our kids' overuse of social media, video games and texting is eclipsing their connection with family and school - the two most important contributors to their well-being.  The result is a generation of kids who suffer from extraordinary rates of emotional and academic problems, and are falling prey to an epidemic of video game and internet addictions. 

This interactive talk will explore key questions:

  • How technology affects family, and how important family is for kids
  • If technology is addictive
  • How technology affects school success
  • Who better understands technology: parents or kids, and
  • How to help children learn to use technology productively

Richard Freed, Ph.D., is a child and adolescent psychologist and a leading authority on raising children in the digital age.  Dr. Freed is the author of the book Wired Child:  Reclaiming Childhood in a Digital Age, is a regular contributor to the Huffington Post, and his insights have been featured in The New York Times, The Atlantic, and other media platforms.  He lives in Walnut Creek, California with his wife and two daughters.  To learn more, visit RichardFreed.com
