During the day, Dr. Neufeld will present “Keeping Children Safe in a Wounding World” to Seattle Waldorf School staff as professional development ( in-house event only). In the evening, he will present “Raising Children in a Digital Age”, which is open to public and hosted by the Seattle Waldorf School as part of their Parent Education Series.
The digital revolution has happened so quickly that it has caught most of us off guard. Yet the digital world is here to stay, changing our society in ways that have far-reaching consequences for our children. What are the implications for parenting? How do we harness the spectacular connecting potential and yet avoid the pitfalls of attachment technology gone awry? How do we prepare them to live in this new world and yet preserve what is required for healthy development to take place? We have followed our children into the digital world and yet for their sakes as well as ours, need to restore our lead in order to avoid the insidious dangers that live in the shadows of this potent technology.
Dr. Neufeld looks at the digital revolution as a developmentalist committed to helping parents help their children become all they were meant to be. He not only explains the drive underlying today’s digital technology but also points to a way through.
