Evening Presentation by Dr. Gordon Neufeld

Relationship Matters – RAISING CHILDREN IN A DIGITAL WORLD
The digital world is here to stay, changing our society in ways that have far reaching consequences for our children. What are the implications for parenting? How do we harness the spectacular connecting potential and yet avoid the pitfalls of attachment technology gone awry? How do we prepare them to live in this new world and yet preserve what is required for healthy development to take place? We have followed our children into the digital world and yet for their sakes as well as ours, need to restore our lead in order to avoid the insidious dangers that live in the shadows of this potent technology. Dr. Neufeld will look at the digital revolution as a developmentalist committed to helping parents help their children become all they were meant to be.

Dr. Gordon Neufeld, a world-renowned psychologist and best-selling author, addresses these issues and points to a way through. His approach is refreshing and his insights make sense, not only of today’s society but also of the children and youth in our care.
