Technology increases both opportunities and challenges for young children. On October 23 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM, Dr. Jill Walsh, a researcher and lecturer at Boston University, will talk with parents about practical strategies to set limits and foster positive communication with children about technology. Hosted by Charles River School in Dover, this event is open to the public and free of charge.

Through this talk, parents will learn about the impact of technology on children, and how to be proactive (instead of reactive) in managing their children’s technology use. Dr. Walsh will explore the most common platforms used by young children and provide practical tips for conversations. She will discuss strategies parents can employ around important topics like managing screen time, and share best practices parents can implement during the younger years to help children get ready to manage their own devices in the future. Dr. Walsh believes that positive conversations around technology, coupled with healthy boundaries, can help our children thrive in the digital world.

The event will take place in the Community Building at Charles River School, accessed via the Old Meadow Road entrance to campus, October 23 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM. Attendees are asked to register in advance at Learn more about Dr. Walsh at
