Mission Viejo Library One Big Appy Family Flyer

Check out the Mission Viejo Library’s Flyer for their app-based parent night.  We held two of these events and got some really valuable insight about what parents are concerned about, like how do you know when media is “safe”? How much screen time is appropriate at what age? Will my child fall behind if he doesn’t have an iPad?

Recommendations from this pilot project include:

  • Provide activities for kids to do while talking to the parents
  • Give access to the devices and walk through some apps (like a tech petting zoo)
  • Be prepared to do some appvisory!
  • Evenings might be hard; what about a weekend?
