Parenting, Media, and Everything In Between

Kids using cell phones

Parents have a lot of responsibility. Mainly, keep the kid alive. Next, try to raise a decent human being. And the messages about media and tech start almost from the moment they’re born: TV will rot your kid’s brain! Video games are evil! Kids don’t know how to have conversations anymore! It all boils down to the idea that too much media and tech will ruin your kid — or make them fat, dumb, and mean. But obviously, that’s an oversimplification. The truth is more complicated — and a lot less scary.

Here we break down the scariest media and tech rumors and give you some solid research and simple, no-stress advice.

The deadline EXTENDED to Thursday, March 15 to complete the brief survey for Master Gardener to help us determine the level of interest in Bibb County.

Want to become an Extension Master Gardener?  We are trying to put together another Bibb County Master Gardener class in 2018, following our first-ever class in 2017.  We need at least 15 participants to offer another class, and we hope you will help make that happen!  Please click this link https://auburn.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cLVB2kFBSNYI8Sh and complete the brief survey by Thursday, March 15 to help us determine the level of interest. 

Please be sure to either provide your contact information at the end of the survey or call our office to be sure we know you’re interested.  This will allow us to follow up with you regarding possible plans for the program.  Several people have completed the survey, yet failed to provide contact information that would allow us to follow up with them.

Feel free also to send the survey link to others that may be interested.  Survey responses will be kept confidential, yet anyone who prefers to indicate their interest by calling 205-926-4310 or emailing us may do so.
