HSHS hospitals to host presentation on Parenting Teens in a Digital Age Nov. 20


Do you have a pre-teen or teenager who zones out and tunes into his/her cellphone, iPad or tablet while ignoring you? Let’s face it – parenting is hard enough without having to compete with a computer for your teen’s attention. If this sounds familiar, then you’ll want to join HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals’ 3D Community Health Body.Mind.Spirit. for a presentation called “Warp Speed: Parenting Teens in a Digital Age.”

Taking place Wednesday, November 20, at 29 Pines/Sleep Inn & Suites Conference Center, 5872 33rd Ave., this free event will be presented by Jessica Wong, certified prevention specialist with the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation.

This informative, fast-paced presentation will provide an overview of the digital world of teenagers, what they’re doing online, the impact technology has on social and emotional development and how to help kids use technology in a balanced and safe way. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the program starts at 6 p.m.

To register for this free presentation, call 715-717-1600 or visit: www.sacredhearteauclaire.org/Events-Classes.
