Where: Blessed Sacrament School Gym

*Childcare available.  Please email Mrs. Hubbard if you are in need of childcare to attend this event.

Kids spend more than eight hours per day, seven days a week on electronic devices.  The results is a malleable brain that is rewired to assimilate to a cyber world – not the real world.  The byproduct is chronic anxiety, attention deficit, depression, poor social skills, academic failure, and family relationship problems.  This lecture is an eye-opener and will include tips to help live in the real world.

Mr. Kersting will provide strategies and education in:

  • Technology use and mental health
  • How much screen time is too much?
  • Strategies to help your child reduce anxiety
  • How much sleep is acceptable for your child?
  • Creating leaders, not followers
  • Your role as a parent

    Hi! I am a member of Blessed Sacrament but my kids go to a different school. I’ve read Mr. Kersting’s book and I’d love to hear him speak. Is it okay for my husband and me to attend? Thanks!
