Screen Time parent talk by Dr Aric Sigman at TGS

Update of location: Due to popular demand, the talk will now take place at Lift, 45 White Lion Street, London, N1 9PW

We will be hosting a one off ‘Managing Screen Time and Preventing Screen Dependency’ parents talk Thursday 7th February 2019 at 7pm-9pm at Lift, 45 White Lion Street, London, N1 9PW, led by Dr Sigman. Dr Sigman is an academic who specialises in this very area and has agreed to once again return to our school to give a talk to parents. This talk is available for parents of the school as well as parents whose children do not attend The Gower School.

We highly recommend this event; In today’s world, screens rule every aspect of our lives. Our children are now growing up in an age where communication and pastime is primarily achieved through the use of electronic screens, whether that be on mobile phones, tablets, computers or televisions. With this in mind, we feel it is important for parents to further understand the psychology and science behind what has been labelled ‘Screen Addiction’, and how it impacts the development of a child’s social, psychological, and even physical, development.
