Do you and your kids reach for your phones the minute you wake up—and keep them by your sides 24/7? Do you pick up your phone for one purpose only to look up 45 minutes later wondering what happened to the time? Do you feel like you can't focus the way you used to? Is your memory shot? Do you feel disconnected from friends and family? Do you know anyone who spends too much time on their phone? If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, come hear from Catherine Price, author of How to Break Up with Your Phone: The 30-Day Plan to Take Back Your Life.
Ms. Price, a graduate of Yale University and the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, is an award-winning science journalist, speaker, and author, who has developed practical strategies to help people of all ages create healthier relationships with their devices and improve their creativity, productivity and mental health. Ms. Price is also the creator and founder of Screen/Life Balance, which is dedicated to helping people learn how to scroll less and live more. (Don't worry: no phones will be harmed or discarded as a result of this presentation.)
Ms. Price will speak with the Prep students in a separate session during the school day.
Following Ms. Price’s presentation to the parents and a Q&A session, we will adjourn to the Atrium for a cocktail reception. Ms. Price’s book, How to Break Up with Your Phone: The 30-Day Plan to Take Back Your Life, will be available for sale during the reception.
