Join McGill Educational and Counselling Psychology experts for a series of interactive virtual masterclasses, with practical advice for parents trying to navigate the challenges of raising kids in the digital age.

 

Modern-day parenting is tough enough but now that families are so dependent on screens for learning, socializing, and entertainment, it’s hard to separate good habits from bad. In this three-part series, parents will learn best practices in order to set realistic screen-time boundaries for their kids.
