Topic: Keeping Up With Toddlers: Risks, Realities, & Rewards of Technology
Twenty years ago, many adults didn’t even use the Internet. Now, we must embrace technology’s very large role in our everyday lives, from infants to elders! We know that our kids are active participants in sharing their news and lives online, but with new popular apps being downloaded every day, how can adults keep up? Join us as we discuss the need to accept and adapt to changes on an almost daily basis, the social and informational benefits that technology affords us, and the safety challenges which it also presents, now and in the future.
