Description: Are they addicted? Why is it so hard for kids to put down devices? What do parents/guardians need to know about the digital world and how it affects their child’s development. Positive strategies to build connection with your kids through tech.

Webinar: Understanding Addiction and Addictive Behaviours

When: May 12, 2022 from 7 - 8 p.m,
