Two Great Wilton Library Programs for Parents

The Wilton Library is offering two great presentations for parents next week:

Planning–and Paying–for College

Monday, Feb. 3, 7 p.m. Educational consultants Howard and Matthew Greene discuss “Changes in the College Admissions Process: What Every Family Should Know About Planning and Paying for College Today.” Their presentation will cover recent trends in college admissions; what matters most in the  admissions process as well as how parents and students can navigate the admissions landscape today in a positive and productive way, with less stress, more enjoyment, and the right priorities. Families are encouraged to attend together, and the program will be geared toward students in grades 9 to 11. There is no charge for this program but please register in advance.

How Much is Too Much Video Game Playing?

Wednesday, Feb. 5, 10:30 a.m.  Are you looking for some guidance on establishing healthy limits on video gaming? Clinical psychologist Dr. Eric Schleifer will talk to parents about the effects of video games on children and how to create a plan for managing video game usage. Dr. Schleifer received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the Gordon F. Derner Center for Psychoanalytic Studies at Adelphi University, where he wrote his dissertation on the long- and short-term effects of video games on children. This presentation is co-sponsored by Wilton Youth Council’s Parent Connection, Wilton Library and United Way of Coastal Fairfield County. Please register in advance.
