This isn’t your typical parent workshop where you learn how to “manage” your teen’s media activity and habits. Move past managing and start COLLABORATING. Research shows that teens who are more engaged with their parents on social media are more likely to have positive social media behaviors. This fun and interactive parent-teen workshop is designed to help you remove the tension from your media conversations at home, and instead work toward collaborative communication that encourages information creation and sharing.
