Summer ECFE Mixed Ages: Growing Up SocialKaren Pennaz, Orono ECFE Parent Educator, shares one of her favorite parenting books, Growing Up Social. Is technology drawing your family together or driving it apart? Children are spending more and more time interacting with a screen and less time playing outside, reading books or interacting with a parent. While technology can benefit us, it can also erode a sense of togetherness and hinder a child’s emotional and social development. Now is the time to equip your child for healthy involvement with screens and an even healthier involvement with others.
