Mid-Peninsula District Coordinators:
Presenter: Karen Hamilton, LMFT
Program Description: This program will teach how to establish and enforce family Internet and social media rules and use of devices. This program covers Internet and social media “Best Practices,” which have worked successfully for families of adolescents. The examples provided will give lessons about setting limits around adolescent technology time. The program is broken up into three parts about how to get children started on social media, maintenance rules, and implementation of restrictions when/if need be. Specific rules, boundaries, and structures will be outlined.
