Next Tuesday, we’re talking Media Literate Homes with parent coach Margery Healey.
Television, ipads, ipods – it is generally recommended not to expose children to any media until 2 years old, but we know this isn’t always possible. This seminar is no lecture to parents on the kids and television and we promise, no judgements!
Instead, Margery will give you the facts on media and children, provide ideas on establishing a value system, and give you the information needed to make personal choices on media and your children.
This is always a controversial topic, but a good one! I hope you can join us. The event is on Tuesday, January 22nd in the evening. Doors open at Nestings Kids at 6:30pm for shopping (and a 10% discount). Seminar is from 7pm-8:30pm. $15 for members, $20 for non-members, $30 for couples. Use code MMBLOG for a $5 discount!

Here is Margery giving us a quick run down on the seminar (turn volume up a bit):
