Wilmington Public Schools To Present “Social Media, Social Relationships & Bullying” Online Presentation For Parents On October 27

WILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington Public Schools is hosting a virtual parent event on Social Media, Social Relationships and Bullying on Thursday, October 27, 2022 at 6:30pm.

Before the pandemic, screen use, anxiety and social problems (like bullying and fighting) were top concerns for parents. The last 2 years have made some of these issues even more challenging. This talk will examine how kids are doing emotionally and socially, in light of the pandemic and increased screen use. Research will be summarized, and practical approaches to family life that can help children develop emotional resilience, healthy social skills and friendships, and sensible screen and social media habits will be discussed during this presentation. We will discuss how to move forward to a healthier “new normal” and how to help parents be most productive in guiding their children towards a full social and emotional recovery.

Presented by Dr. Elizabeth Englander, Executive Director and Founder of the Massachusetts Aggression Reduction Center & Professor of Psychology at Bridgewater State University.

Parents are asked to pre-register HERE.
