Parenting in the Digital Age
There are many challenges to raising children in the Digital Age: Our children and parents spending so much time on screens and so little time together; The difficult economy here in Aroostook County and its effect on children and families; The Opiate Crisis; grandparents raising their children’s children, and so much more. At a recent recognition ceremony, acknowledging the 5th year that Pines and Cary have earned the ‘Women’s Choice Award’ as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics, the issue of parenting came front and center. The professional staff were passionate about the need for additional parenting programming for both health care professionals and parents. They referenced the many challenges faced by the patients and as a result the April 27th – ‘Parenting in the Digital Age’ conference was born.
We are so pleased that Dr. Stephen Bavolek a recognized leader in the field of child abuse and neglect and prevention and parenting education has agreed to come to Aroostook County for this all day seminar and an evening with community members. We are grateful to The Center for the Advancement of Rural Living for sponsoring the event.
