Perrot Memorial Library joins the Greenwich Alliance for Education, Greenwich Library, and the Greenwich PTA in presenting Behind Their Screens, With Author Emily Weinstein, on Sunday, November 20, from 3 to 4 pm, in the Berkley Theater at Greenwich Library.
Harvard researcher Emily Weinstein will discuss her co-authored book Behind their Screens: What Teens are Facing (and Adults are Missing) with moderator Kathy Steiner of Greenwich High School.
Contrary to many assumptions, teens are not simply “addicted” to their screens. They are instead trying to navigate a networked world. Drawing on a survey of more than 3,500 teens, authors Emily Weinstein and Carrie James explain that young people need empathy, not exasperated eye-rolling from adults who should try and understand the complicated nature of teens’ online life rather than issue commands.
