Monday, April 6 at 7pm at Natick High School

featuring Dr. Christine Carter of the Greater Good Science Center, UC Berkeley

Today’s teenagers and preteens are growing up in an entirely new world, one that is defined by social media and mobile devices. Understandably, many parents are paralyzed by new problems that didn’t exist less than a decade ago, like social media and video game obsession, sexting, and vaping.

Highly acclaimed sociologist at UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, Dr. Christine Carter melds research—including the latest findings in neuroscience, sociology, and social psychology—with her own real-world experiences as the mother of four teenagers. 

This program will address: 

  • Providing the structure teens need while giving them the autonomy they seek
  • Helping them overcome distractions
  • Teaching them the art of “strategic slacking”
  • Protecting them from anxiety, isolation, and depression
  • Fostering the real-world, face-to-face social connections they desperately need
  • Effective conversations about tough subjects—including sex, drugs, and money

This program is FREE and all are welcome! Books will be on sale by independent bookseller, Wellesley Books
