Plugged In Parenting #Quarantine

Last year, Mental Ideas partnered National Day of Unplugging to bring you Mental Ideas Unplugged. The chilled event, held in Hong Kong Park, highlighted the value of disconnecting from our digital devices for a respite period of 24 hours. THIS year, digital devices are often our only form of connection to the outside world. So, NDU’s events have (ironically) become an online gathering. But that’s not to say the movement has completely reversed its mission to help us improve our mental health and wellbeing by limiting our screen time, even during a world health pandemic!

Here are some of NDU’s inspiring upcoming online events you can join live for free on Zoom!

National Day Of Unplugging connects people across the globe, from all walks of life, in different fields of study, with a variety of worldviews – all wanting to elevate human connection over digital engagement.

Let’s talk about screen time…

PLUGGED IN PARENTING: Families In Quarantine

A discussion with Catherine Price, award-winning journalist/author, Stefanie Greenberg, LA Based Learning Specialist, facilitated by Overlake School (Washington) Head of Technology, Jay Heath. See bios below.

Gather with us in the NDU Zoom Room to discover how three parents whose jobs are to educate others are now navigating the new world of being restricted to working remotely while helping children to learn and socialize online.

Following the April 3 Online Gathering, stay in the Zoom room because Unplugged Village will show us how to keep younger kids at home delighted and surprised with Fort-Night Fun (PS. It’s not the video game!)

Join the #QuarantineChallenge, designed by Catherine Price’s Screen/Life Balance to spread inspiration and calm.
