Tech Talk for Parents
Wednesday, October 11 @ 9:30am
Barrington Area Library Meeting Room


Join Mandy Burbank, LCSW from AMITA Health/Alexian Brothers Behavior Health and Angie Berthlesen, owner of Social Me Savvy and Social Media Savvy Parents as we discuss the intersection of technology, social media, child development, and parenting.  Mandy will bring her expertise as a licensed clinical social worker to discuss how technology interacts with the social and emotional development of children and how we can use that information to inform our parenting.  Angie will discuss the latest trends, updates to social media sites, and the safety concerns such as Snapchat's new feature that lets anyone see your child's location.  Parents will leave the presentation with helpful information about child development and technology, as well as tips for managing your child's technology use that you can apply in your own family.
