Register for FREE FSCA Webinar!

FSCA is hosting a webinar on September 16th, 2015 at 2:00 PM EST titled "Family Engagement in the Digital Age."

Below is a description of the presentation:

We live in a connected world.  Parents and kids are almost connected through digital media and technology.  Whether engaged on social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, or simply texting, our society is increasingly reliant on smart phones, wi-fi connections and other technological conveniences.  Unfortunately, people
are often disconnected and less engaged on a personal level with their very own family.  With all the distractions of texts, Instant Messages, posts and tweets, we are spending less and less time engaging face-to-face with our families.  This disconnection and distraction is having a very real impact, not just at home, but also at school.  In Family First’s more than twenty years of working to strengthen families, we have seen first-hand the impact involved parents, and particularly fathers; have on their children’s behavior and their academic performance.  In this workshop, we will share critical information on the importance and benefits of an engaged family, both at home and in the school setting.  We will discuss how to connect with your family and build relationships in the digital age, and we will walk through how to overcome many of the hurdles that currently exist to ensure that your school families have the greatest chance to succeed.
