The United Methodist Church of the Pines will be hosting an outreach event for the Minocqua community in February for youth and their parents. Youth in 4th through 12th grades and their parents are invited to participate. On February 24th we will show the film SCREENAGERS and then break out into age-appropriate discussion groups.

Synopsis of the film: Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and film maker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well. In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.
