Workshop Facilitator, Alan Candee is the creator of Mindful Media Management, a business which entertains and educates children and parents. Mr. Candee will share the research that supports limited electronic screen time for children and zero exposure for children less than three years of age. Discussion will suggest that the best experiences of childhood: (1) Take place outdoors, (2) involve social interaction, and (3) cost little or no money. Participants will brainstorm ways to foster child-direct play and take advantage of children’s natural curiosity, creativity, and imagination.
