Saturday, May 2oth | Parenting in a Digital Age 8:45-10:30am

Are you finding it hard to know how to guide your kids and youth when it comes to managing the use of tablets, smart phones, and the internet? Are you finding yourself wishing, even praying, that you could magically zap your family back to the “Good Ol’ Days?”  You are not alone! Come join us as we gather to share our successes, mistakes, questions and fears. This will be a place to collaborate with other parents and to share resources that have been helpful on this journey. We will meet in the Fellowship Hall at Berkeley Covenant Church. Childcare is provided.
