An informative parent workshop presented in collaboration with the Institute of Digital Media and Child Development took place at the high school on April 1. Many parents of children throughout the district were in attendance to gather helpful and scientifically backed tips to help oversee their children and the use of screens. Presenters Dr. Pam Hurt-Della Pietra, the president of Children and Screens: Institute of Digital Media and Child Development and Stonybrook professor Dr. Lauren Hale, a local Northport mom, shared their knowledge and research with those in attendance. They covered topics such as social patterning of sleep and how it contributes to disparities in health and well-being and what screens do to teen sleep health, and took time to answer questions at the end of the event.
