Screenagers Movie - Presented by All Saints School Council 

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and 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.

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. 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.  Our All Saints School Council has sponsored a screening of “Screenagers” to take place on May 9th at the school. There is no cost to this event, and further information regarding the showtime will be provided shortly. We invite parents and students to join us for this great opportunity!

There is a great deal of information on the CSPA website regarding information for parents and upcoming sessions. You can visit the website here.
