Catherine Steiner-Adair to Present The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age.

Greensboro Day School will host Catherine Steiner-Adair on April 26 as the McLendon Society Speaker. Dr. Steiner-Adair will help parents understand the ways in which technology and media are putting children at risk at each stage of development, from infancy through young adulthood, and challenging what it means to be a family. 

Drawing on real life stories from her clinical work with children and families and her consulting work with educators and experts across the Country, Dr. Steiner-Adair offers insights and advice that can help parents achieve greater understanding, authority and confidence as they come up against the tech revolution that is unfolding in their living room.

The audience will learn the skills to distinguish between educational, healthy and unhealthy use, and practical strategies for nourishing deep attention, creativity, empathy and meaningful relationships.

Make plans to join us on Wednesday, April 26 at 7 p.m. in the Sloan Theatre for this insightful speaker. This event is open to the public and admission is free.

Welcome back from what I hope was an amazing holiday break. I would like to take a moment to welcome those who have recently joined our community, this new year. We are quite excited about what you bring to GDS, as well as what our community has to offer you and your families. This is an opportunity for us to learn and grow together. Go Bengals. Happy New Year!
