Parenting In The Digital Age

Erin Walsh, a speaker and expert in digital media and its impacts on youth and families, is returning to South Washington County Schools. She will host two presentations about parenting in the digital age. Walsh presented a popular series last spring called Community Conversation that included information about digital citizenship and supporting mental health.

The presentations will help parents address important issues about online activities and teen wellbeing. Learn how to encourage healthy and responsible online habits and stay positively connected to your child. These presentations are made possible through a PrairieCare Child and Family Fund grant.
