YSB Mind Matters – Teens and Technology Breakfast
February 13, 2020 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am
If you’re caring for a young person and are feeling stuck, lost or helpless when it comes to understanding and supporting them, you don’t want to miss YSB’s upcoming Mind Matters event.
TEENS AND TECHNOLOGY
The Internet and smartphones continue to alter the way teens socialize with friends, handle dating, do their schoolwork and communicate with family members. Join us to hear from others on how we – as parents, partners and caregivers – we can support our young people to use their devices in ways that are creative and productive, but also safe and responsible.
Leading us in conversation will be:
- John McKnight, YSB Mental Health Counselor
- A parent who has helped their teen reach out and benefit from YSB supports
- Constable Cory McAree, Ottawa Police Services, Youth Division
Date: Thursday February 13, 2020
Time: 7:30 am to 9:00 am
Location: L-Spark (340 Legget Dr. Kanata)
Tickets: $25.00 (Includes coffee and a light breakfast)
