Is your kid a zombie because he spends all hours of the day and night playing video games? Are you worried that your teen’s video games are a bit too violent and addictive but are an important way to keep him connected right now?
Tune in on Wednesday, September 23rd at noon EDT for “Win or Lose: What to Do About Videogaming,” a Children and Screens Ask the Experts webinar, to learn about the good, the bad, and the research on this favorite adolescent pastime. Meet world-renowned Yale University Child Study Center psychiatrist and neuroscientist Marc Potenza and other researchers, psychologists, former gamers and parenting educators for a fascinating conversation about what the science says about video game use, from socializing to problematic violent game play and addiction, with evidence-based advice for how parents can:
-engage in an open and non-judgmental dialogue
-work with children and teens to choose appropriate content,
-create healthy habits around playing
manage how often and when video games are played
-ensure optimal health and development
For those who are interested, there will be an opportunity at registration to indicate whether you would like to ask your question for the panel live on camera during the workshop.
