Parenting in an age of Media and Technology

Today’s young people are part of Generation Z – people born after 1999. Parents are raising children in a unique world, as a result of current events and the ever present media in their lives.  What are those events, what impact are they having on the newest generation, and what does that mean about what they need from the parents and other adults in their lives?

Leader: Sarah Casper, M.S.

Participants share common joys, common concerns, and learn to handle sibling-specific "sticky situations." Sibshops are a mix of games, discussion, food, and fun!
