Join other parents in our Foothiill community as we learn how to help your child navigate the world of cellphones.
Should you Wait Until 8th? Navigating the world of smart phones for middle school students - or even in elementary school - can be daunting. When do you give them a phone? Should it be a flip phone or smartphone? If it’s a smartphone, how can you manage it and help them navigate the world of gaming, social media and distractions.
Thursday, March 21st
We'll see a short presentation about some of the research around teens and cell phones and share best practices.
The presentation will be led by parent Debbie McCarthy. She has two older boys in high school, one who just graduated from Casey Middle School and one who is a senior and a daughter in 4th grade at Whittier Elementary. As they say “third times a charm” and she is hoping to get the cellphone process more productive for their third child, since she feels she made so many mistakes with the first two.
Please RSVP below. Feel free to invite other parents who may be interested.
The Foothill Elementary PTO welcomes all Foothill parents, students and staff to contribute their thoughts and ideas to our blog.
