We live in the age of information, and the internet is shaping how we view the world. What happens when our kids soak up information differently than we’d explain it?
Join us for a free ParentEd Talks event with acclaimed author Julie Bogart. Her latest book, “Raising Critical Thinkers: A Parent’s Guide to Growing Wise Kids in the Digital Age,” explores the complexities and strategies of honing digital literacy skills in kids.
Bogart will share how parents can teach their children to safely navigate the information (or disinformation) highway that is the internet and explore the world while understanding that their values and biases affect how they interpret information and shape their beliefs.
"Curiosity without defensiveness starts at home with our little dissidents. Our kids will challenge our good ideas every day. Once in a while, ask them to share more. Discover how they put the pieces together for themselves and think about how we can account for their needs, their beliefs, their ideas in the solutions we create together."
