Approximately 100 people attended the screening of the documentary Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age at Del Mar Hills Academy in December, followed by a group discussion. The film explores the vulnerable corners of family life and depicts messy struggles over social media, video games, academics, and internet addiction. On Feb. 16, Dr. Catherine Steiner-Adair, critically acclaimed speaker and author of The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age, followed up with a free community discussion. “At Del Mar Hills, we truly believe that we are all in this together,” said Del Mar Hills PTA President Jeannie Thomas. “Families are just trying to do the best they can to navigate through these fairly new waters of raising kids in this digital age.
