Workshops for Parents
Media R Us
Before my daughter was born, I had already spent five years researching the role of media in the lives of children and families. This familiarized me with the debates and issues that she would face beginning life in a media-saturated world. Not all parents have this luxury, which is why I developed this workshop.
Media R Us is a crash course in the most recent research on screen media and children. It provides a look at the role media plays in development, socialization, identity and imagination and aims to create awareness and opportunities for new parents to make choices that will benefit their family in the future.
