"Screenagers: Next Chapter" to be shown at Medway HS

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"Superintendent of Schools Armand Pires invites parents to attend the district’s screening of “Screenagers: Next Chapter” from 7-8:30 p.m. next Wednesday at the Medway High School auditorium.

Parents can watch the film and hear from a panel of experts to learn about how screen time may be affecting teens. The event is hosted by Medway’s T.H.R.I.V.E. (Tools necessary to foster Health, Resiliency, Inclusiveness, Vitality and Empowerment) and SEPAC (Special Education Parent Advisory Council).

The film follows a physician who tries to find a way to help her own teens with their mental and emotional well-being. The film, which includes input from brain researchers, psychologists and other thought leaders, explores how teens’ well-being is impacted by screens and how parents and schools can help teens develop skills to overcome mental and emotional health challenges.

The film will be shown to all Medway middle and high school students during school that day."
