Redmayne Reports

A workshop for parents on how screens are affecting children and what to do about it
- Feeling stressed or anxious about your family’s phone and screen use?
- Do you love your cell phone but wonder about whether it’s safe?
- Have you noticed changes in your children’s mood and behaviour as time on social media or gaming has increased?

Find out about problems from phone exposure: biological changes, increased risk of brain tumours, fertility issues, behavioural changes. And others related to screen time: social development skills, short-sightedness, screen-addiction, anxiety and depression.

This workshop is for any parents/teachers, focusing mainly on school children’s phone and screen use.
It will cover:
- Adverse biological/health effects of cell phone and screen use
- How much is too much?
- Ways to minimise radiofrequency exposure
- Methods to manage screen time (helping you stay in control of your devices – not the other way around!)

Be equipped to make informed decisions
No door sales. Sales close at 4.30PM 13/11/18

Workshop limited to a maximum of 25 people – participation, discussion, Q&A opportunities
