Parents, Lets Talk Mental Health with Menninger Series

Virtual lunchtime series features experts from The Menninger Clinic.

Social media, new technology, and the internet – children today are experiencing a new digital world, different from the childhood of their parents. Common Sense Media reports that teenagers spend about seven hours a day on a digital device for entertainment; children ages 12 and younger spend over 4 and a half hours. How do parents keep pace with this digital activity? Mallory Mincberg, MEd, licensed professional counselor at The Menninger Clinic will share insights on how parents can navigate parenting in a digital world in a positive way. She’ll address how parents can model behaviors on devices; how to stay a step ahead with social media and other popular apps their children are using; and why it is important to give children some digital privacy and how to do it.

The Menninger Clinic, a nationally recognized mental health leader in Houston, joins The Health Museum to offer parents and caregivers helpful mental health information through a free, virtual bi-monthly series, 12pm - 1pm.
