Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age

Monday, February 19, 2018, 6:00 PM - 1:00 AM

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker 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.

The upcoming free showings of an award winning documentary called “Screenagers-Growing Up in the Digital Age” are being sponsored by Madison Memorial Hospital, Madison School District, and the City of Rexburg. It’s showing at Romance theater in Rexburg on Presidents’ Day. Showtimes are 10AM, 1230PM and 3PM.

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.
