Description

The Adolescent and the Phone

Is the ever present phone a boon or a blight?

What's being lost? What's being gained?

How we deal with phones at school and at home is one of the most pressing issues of our time. We worry more and more about the hold of the phone on our teenagers, our younger ones and ourselves. Join us on October 14th to grapple with this urgent issue. Hear the research from the experts in the morning, join lively debate in the afternoon, and come away with your own conclusions.
