As part of the City of Pembroke Pines award winning series Raising Positive Children, students, parents, grandparents/guardians, educators and youth advocates are invited to this virtual forum addressing “Social Media’s Impact on Youth Mental Health.” Ninth in our series, this forum shares information that will help children use the internet in a safe, responsible and positive way, and open the line of communication among parents, schools and students regarding risks online.
Raising Positive Children presentations are hosted by Pembroke Pines Commissioner Iris A. Siple, West Campus Charter School Principal Michael Castellano, the Education Roundtable Forum and the City of Pembroke Pines to call attention to and find solutions for the many issues parents and children face today at home and at school.
